UQ Sustainable Energy Timor-Leste Study Tour 2023
What an amazing way to start 2023! We worked closely with UQ Sustainable Energy Program Coordinator Dr Tony Heynen to design and facilitate this tour. Check out this bunch of lucky #sustainableenergy students on a field trip with Program Coordinator Dr Tony Heynen to Timor-Leste to explore Asia's newest nation's energy and sustainability situation! #timorleste has seen a rapid roll-out of government #electrification in recent years, with generation largely provided by unsustainable fossil fuel power stations. But this increased electricity access has not produced major improvements in the agriculture-based livelihoods of people in rural areas, with the country still ranking very low on the Human Development Index. The students explored this fascinating trilemma playing out in one of Australia’s closest neighbours by discussing the energy and sustainability situation in Timor-Leste with government representatives and NGOs, visiting local villages and much more. #timorleste #timorunearthed #hauniatimorleste Video Credit - Tammy MacGinley (Thank you!)

Timor Unearthed - High School Immersion Waverley College 2018
" In July 2018, myself along with 14 other Waverley boys and two teachers travelled to Timor-Leste on the trip of a lifetime. The immersion was the most humbling experience and is something I'll cherish for the rest of my life. I'm sure I speak for all the boys when I say, we had an absolute ball, met amazing people and grew so much as individuals. I couldn't have asked for a better bunch of boys to go on this journey with and I am so grateful for the bonds we formed as a group through the experience. Thank you to Ms O'Sullivan, Mr Davis, Timor Unearthed and anyone else involved in making the trip possible. Most of all, thank you to the people of Timor, for showing me that money doesn't buy happiness and that life is about the people you spend it with and the memories you make. Obrigadu. Ate logu. I cannot wait to return to this amazing country! This is a video of the trip's highlights, hope you enjoy!" - Max Thanks to Max Curry for this great video on the Waverley College Immersion in 2018.
