A huge congratulations to Theresa Bodner of Bangor University and James Bain of Cardiff University, the joint winners of our #SmallNationBigIdeas video competition! They will get to split the pot, each taking home a cash prize of £75 kindly funded by the College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at Bangor University.
When we started our video series, Small Nation, Big Ideas: Welsh science tackling climate change, our aim was to highlight the excellent researchers based in Wales, and their contributions to addressing one of the biggest challenges facing society. To celebrate and encourage those who are relatively new to science and research we opened a competition for the best video submission from early career researchers.
The series of short films will showcase cutting-edge research being carried out in Wales. Additionally, there will be lots of opportunities for researchers working on climate-change related topics to talk to the media in the run-up to COP26, so this video series is chance to for us to put a spotlight on engaging and enthusiastic speakers. The videos will be promoted on our website, social media channels, and have the chance to become part of the Wales Climate Week exhibit, reaching a large audience of fellow researchers, policy makers and the public.
