Martin Foley, Victoria Minister for Creative Industries, talks about the opportunity that LAGI 2018 offers to secure Victoria's leading position in the development of renewable energy resources. "By bringing together the world's best thinkers" on the LAGI 2018 challenge, Victoria is leading the cultural innovation and design of new energy systems as a practical and social response to climate change, contributing to the State's goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050. LAGI 2018 shows how design and clean energy "are two sides of the one coin."

Art+Energy Camp, Summer 2015, Pittsburgh
This unique six-week summer (2015) camp in the Homewood neighborhood of
Pittsburgh gave 20 kids an education in energy science, climate science, art, design,
and solar power installation. The final outcome was a built solar artwork—Renaissance
Gate—designed by the campers!
