First-year 气候变化学士 students Morgan Harris and Georgina Barwood are the inaugural winners of the 塔保险气候变化奖学金.

塔保险气候变化奖学金 was established in 2021 to acknowledge the need to nurture a workforce that has a comprehensive understanding of climate change. 的 two recipients were chosen based on their commitment to understanding climate change and their desire to communicate its impact to the wider community to assist in implementing real world solutions.

Morgan, who attended Hauraki Plains College, has always been interested in climate change. “I remember in Year 8 learning about climate change but I didn’t understand why it was happening. 的 more I learnt, the more I felt empowered that I could make a difference in this space,她说.

When considering her study options, she found the University of 188bet’s 气候变化学士 the only degree that combined both the science and social aspects of climate change.

“I saw the 气候变化学士 pop up online and knew I had to study it. This degree allows you to tackle climate change through a variety of different lenses.”

Morgan is passionate about her degree and helping communities understand what climate change means. She acknowledges that climate change is a complex problem and she hopes to be able to bridge the gap between science and implementation of real-world solutions.

摩根说,她很感激塔的支持. “It shows that companies like Tower want to help students make a difference in the climate change space.”

第二个接受者, 乔治娜住在奥克兰, 在当了20年英语老师后要回来学习. “I had been teaching for over 20 years and wanted to breakout and find a new way to make a difference. 当我接受教师培训的时候, I had no idea climate change would become the biggest crisis facing humanity and now I want to learn more about how to deal with this existential threat.”

A key motivator for Georgina was to offer a sense of hope for her children and to teach them that there is something we can do about climate change.

随着气候变化学士的介绍, 她的孩子们上学了,她妈妈也在督促她, now was the right time for Georgina to enrol a second time at 188bet.

“20年后回来很难. I went back and forth thinking about whether I could get back into study mode but, 获得奖学金后, 这是其他人同意我可以做这件事的标志,她说.

Tower’s Chief Executive Officer Blair Turnbull says Tower is thrilled to support Morgan and Georgina.

“在塔, we firmly believe that climate change is the single biggest issue that we will face as individuals and as an industry in our lifetime. Tower’s commitment is about enabling the best and the brightest to tackle the climate change challenge, that’s why we are supporting the University of 188bet 气候变化学士 degree.

“就像摩根和乔治娜一样, we believe that we can make a difference and are pleased to be embarking on this world-first journey with them and the University of 188bet.”

作为奖学金的一部分, both recipients have the opportunity to complete an internship with Tower.

气候变化学士, 2022年引入, is the first climate change degree in the world and has seen a good uptake of students in its first year.
