Western Sydney University is hosting a Project Expo by students from James Ruse Agricultural High School. Students will display projects they have developed based on the question: “How can gaining a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding globalisation help us be an agent in changing our communities?”

Professionals working in a range of relevant fields, including academia, government, corporate, community and social enterprise sectors, are invited to attend and engage with the students. 

The Expo will comprise stalls at which students will have set up their work and be available for discussion. Attendees can stop by for as long as they please throughout the two-hour expo. There will be 20 to 25 group projects on display.

The students will address subtopics including:

  • Equality: Addressing homelessness and inequality
  • Culture: Links to Aboriginal heritage and culture
  • Sustainability: Green industries and reduction of energy, waste and water demands
  • Liveability: Focus on the community and sense of belonging
  • Innovation: New technologies and design
  • Connections: Global and community
