Planet Positive Program

Learn more

The greatest challenge of human existence is upon us: the planet is suffering and the consequences for present and future generations are profound.

Tackling climate change, waste generation and the loss of biodiversity is the responsibility of every person. It’s a responsibility to be “Planet Positive.” Being Planet Positive means more than achieving net zero emissions. It’s also about making sure that human activity is restorative of ecosystems.

Curtin students feel this responsibility keenly. They also know that a mastery of complex skills is required to solve challenging environmental issues. Students want these skills and the opportunity to positively effect change in their future careers.
