  • Queensland Museum South Bank

A TPA Climate Commission

Climate change is daunting. We have mostly agreed that it’s happening. But it’s big and what can we do about it anyway? What about cyclone-powered electricity grids? Or lightning-run barbecues? Or dog saliva showers? Can we build a machine to fix it? We need to work together but how do you encourage cooperation? These are some of the ingenious ideas Year 5 children from Milton State School in Brisbane suggested when we asked them to come up with creative solutions to climate change. The children’s artwork responses are sure to surprise and amaze you.
