Testimonial

Kerwin Abinoja

“I did my PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) activity with The Whiddon Group, a NSW-wide aged care provider, to determine the organisation’s carbon footprint and help develop their environmental sustainability plan. It enabled me to learn how to use the knowledge and skills that I have gained in my university studies to solve real-life problems that are relevant to my academic field and to my future career pathway.”
