Entries for 3MPlanet 2022 will open in March!
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.
