For more than nine years, the UQ Global Change Institute has led climate-change solutions in Australia and south-east Asia. Established by The University of Queensland in 2010 and located in its own unique ‘living building’, the institute has acted as an important voice of independent innovative research, ideas, policy and advice for addressing the challenges of a changing world.

For the last 12 months, participants hailing from all corners of the globe have undergone an intensive leadership training program for women with a background in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine), as they prepare for the fourth iteration of the Homeward Bound voyage. This program, seeks to convene and equip a diverse coalition of leaders to increase the visibility of women in both academia and industry. Towards the end of November, the program will culminate with 100 women travelling to Ushuaia, Argentina where they will take their place, embarking on a life-changing voyage to one of the most ecologically pristine and harshest environments in the world - Antarctica.
