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.

What a sensational turnout at the 2024 Curtin Carnaby’s University Basketball League (UBL) Alumni and VIP Function last week at Curtin Stadium! 🏀👏

We welcomed Curtin University alumni, family, and friends to an exclusive pre-game event before watching our brilliant Curtin Carnaby’s win back-to-back games at Round 6 of the 2024 UBL Season.

It was fantastic to see so many of you, along with Curtin Vice-Chancellor Professor Harlene Hayne and the Hon. Hannah Beazley MLA enjoy our very first exclusive pre-game event.

Thank you to  Curtin alumnus Jesse Wagstaff from the Perth Wildcats and Australian Paralympic swimmer and former student Ben Popham for sharing their words of wisdom before the big game.

Jesse and Ben shared some of their favourite pre-game rituals. For Ben, it was calming his nerves by listening to some Taylor Swift and for Jesse, who is also a father of three children, having a nap was essential. 

We can’t wait to bring you more exciting alumni events in the future, stay tuned! 📅

Congratulations to Curtin graduate Dr Sandy Chong on being inducted into WA’s Women’s Hall of Fame! 👏🎉

A trailblazer and champion of women’s empowerment, Sandy’s journey to leadership is a testament to resilience and dedication to dismantling barriers for migrant women in Australia.

As the first Asian person to be elected as President of the United Nations Association in WA, Sandy works tirelessly with local communities, civil society groups, and governments to promote peace, social justice, and inclusion.

Beyond advocacy, Sandy is a passionate mentor for countless young women and migrants through organisations like UN Women, Cherie Blair Foundation and Zonta House Refuge, to name a few.

“This award holds profound significance for me, not only as a woman but also as a migrant in this country. Living in Australia for nearly 30 years, I've encountered and witnessed firsthand the challenges that many face - battling hardships, dealing with both societal and cultural stereotypes, and overcoming systemic barriers. 

“The award is not just a personal achievement for me but also a testament to the resilience and strength of all migrant women everywhere,” Sandy says.

We are so proud of you Sandy, and your unwavering commitment to advancing women’s empowerment in Australia and across Asia! 💛🌏
