Description

EXCLUSIVE SCREENING FOR TERTIARY STUDENTS

On behalf of the UQ Energy Initiative and UQ Student Energy Network, we are delighted to offer the opportunity to attend an exclusive Energy Express Seminar at which we will re-screen the Switch documentary. Originally screened at UQ in 2013, the film itself remains relevant in today's context.

Walk beside Dr Scott Tinker as he embarks on a spectacular global adventure, exploring the world's leading sites for all energy types, coal to solar, oil to biofuels, most of them highly restricted and never before seen on film. He gets straight answers from the political, industry and academic leaders driving energy today. In the end, he discovers a path to our future as surprising as it is practical.

Every energy resource - fossil, nuclear and renewable - is undergoing profound changes. And overall, we are gradually shifting from coal and oil to the energies of tomorrow. This sweeping transition is the subject of Switch. But rather than advocate for how it should happen, Switch travels the world to discover how it most likely will happen. Switch is also about a changing energy conversation. Today, it’s polarized and unproductive. Switch focuses on practical realities and encourages a balanced understanding. Finally, Switch is about changing the way we use energy, to realize the many economic and environmental benefits of efficiency. Switch has been seen by nearly 4 million viewers worldwide, in theaters, university auditoriums, classrooms, on DVD and the web.

Read more about the project’s mission, science, funding and producers here, and take a tour of the Switch website’s features here. For answers to common questions please visit the FAQ page.

The audience will then be invited to participate in the question and answer session. Afterwards please join us for networking and light refreshments in the 'V' courtyard outside the Sir Llew Edwards Building.



We look forward to welcoming you on the evening on Thursday 5 October. We also encourage you to forward event details to other students you feel may be interested in attending.

Admission is complimentary, however please register, indicating any dietary requirements, by Tuesday 3 October 2017.
