Sustainable safari for high school students

For the third year in a row, Linnaeus University organized together with the municipality of Kalmar and Kalmar Energy the sustainable safari for high school students.

This year, 300 students from different schools around Kalmar participated in the safari. Elin Lindehoff was in the planning committee and have planned and organized the day. The theme for this year's edition was how to achieve a climate-smart community and what the students can do to live a more environmental friendly life.

The day was divided in three stations where some students started with a session at the cinema where Catherine Legrand had the opportunity to talk to the students about sustainability and education. The bus guides Hanna Farnelid, Eva Pohl, Emil Fridolfsson and Elisabeth Carlsson guided the students to the next station, Kalmar Öland Airport, where they got to hear about the upcoming solar panel park. The third station was at the power plant in Moskogen where Linnaes University showed the research project Algoland. Martin Olofsson and Fredrik Svensson explained how to clean air and water with algae. Shenhong Ma, Kimberly Berglöf and Maurice Hirwa were all helpful with answering questions from the interested students about the project and the student ambassadors Emma Svahn, Marcus Hall and Louise Richter talked to the potential new students about further education.
