School of Pharmacy PHD student, Tejasvi Shivakumar, is one of three winners of the Space4Youth essay competition run by United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
Tej is on the school’s Astropharmacy and Astromedicine PhD programme, and her essay was titled: " Earth Observation, Renewable Energy and Space Influencers as tools to foster climate adaptation and mitigation".
"For this edition, young people from all over the world were asked to submit an essay on “Space as a tool to foster climate change mitigation and adaptation". Over 430 submissions from over 80 countries were received, more than ever before.
Thanks to the generous contribution of the U.S. Mission to international organizations in Vienna, winners will travel to the United States to meet representatives of the space industry and attend Adult Space Camp at the US Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
The United Kingdom Space Agency is pleased to organize an event with UK and US experts who will provide further feedback to the winners and support them in developing their ideas further."
