Become an Ambassador for the Mayor's Low Carbon Prize
5 March 2013
A message from the Mayor's Low Carbon Prize Team...
We are recruiting ambassadors for the 2013 Mayor’s Low Carbon Prize (MLCP) and would be grateful if you would share this information with your student networks.
The Mayor's Low Carbon Prize, which is open to students at Further and Higher Education Institutions across the capital, will award cash prizes to help develop the best ideas for reducing carbon emissions from London's buildings, transport and energy infrastructure and forms part of the Mayor's commitment to achieve a 60 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2025.
The MLCP promotes innovation and entrepreneurialism amongst London’s students; shortlisted applicants have a chance to win a paid internship with leading industrial engineering firm Siemens, sponsors of the 2013 award. The intention is that this high-profile competition will become a highlight of the academic year – we need your help to do this.
We are now seeking ambassadors to assist us with the delivery of the competition within your institution. We will be holding a recruitment day on Wednesday 13th March at London’s Living Room, City Hall at 1400 prompt with a view to creating a team of individuals from each institution. We are looking for driven, outgoing and enthusiastic students that have creative and entrepreneurial flair and a passion for environmental/sustainable development issues. Ambassadors will also need to be organised and dependable.
The work is voluntary although Ambassadors will receive full support throughout the process and training on communication, presentation and wider engagement skills. Acting as an Ambassador will not affect eligibility to enter the competition. Please see the list of Ambassador duties below.
This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in a high profile competition that will make a very worthwhile addition to any CV.
