Laura Garcia, Bachelor of Arts (International Relations)

“It’s never too late to start uni. It was a journey of discovery for myself – it’s changed my life and my outlook of the world and what I’m capable of doing. As a migrant, I felt Curtin was the bridge to truly being part of the Australian community and feeling an active part of it.

Having migrated from Spain, I’ve always been attracted to other languages and cultures. Doing international relations at Curtin, that was exactly what I got. I was exposed to various areas, like anthropology, history, and security and terrorism, which gave me a good toolkit to work in international development with the United Nations (an internship with the UN in Timor-Leste) later on in intelligence (an internship with the Australian Federal Police), and now in international policy. These work experiences were key and the international experience was crucial to developing a good understanding of the world and how institutions work.”

The future of climate action

The Paris Agreement, which aims to limit the global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by the end of the century, came into force three years ago. Since then, there have been some doubts as to whether this target can be achieved and, in response, a global youth movement has emerged to demand more action.

In this episode of The Future Of, Professor Greg Morrison, from the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute, gives an overview of the current state of climate action and the role scientists are playing to ‘save the world’.
