In May 2021, the Centre for Energy Ethics invited all honours students at the University of St Andrews whose dissertation research explores topics related to energy, climate change and/or climate action, to its inaugural Three Minute Planet (3MPlanet) competition.
The students were asked to present a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance to climate action to a non-specialist audience, in just three minutes.
Their final competition entries are presented below.
