#BlueCarbonArmy: Education by immersive wetland citizen science

 Finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Education category

The HSBC Blue Carbon Citizen Program, funded by HSBC, Deakin University and Earthwatch, educates Australia's corporate executives in climate change knowledge, empowering them to build a sustainable future and value Australia's coastal ecosystems.

By swapping suits for gumboots and providing an immersive experience into coastal wetland research, the BlueCarbonArmy connects executives with nature, leading to scientifically-documented sustainable behaviours.
