Rio+20 competition: another exciting update!!

Following the news earlier this week that all of our top three competition winners would be travelling to Rio to attend the Earth Summit, we're delighted to now be able to confirm that our fourth-placed student, Henrietta Smylie, will be travelling to Sao Paulo over the summer to spend time with Linhas Comunicacao, one of Brazil's leading PR firms, and will be visiting some of their clients (which include the Planet Earth Institute) and seeing the work that they do.

Etta, who is studying for a BSc in Marketing, is being sponsored by the Business School to take the trip, and we're sure that she will gain a lot through visiting Linhas Comunicacao.

Our thanks to the Business School for their huge generosity in agreeing to sponsor this prize, and to Fernanda Bulhoes, CEO of Linhas Comunicacao, for agreeing to host Etta.

And well done Etta - you really deserve it!

You can follow Etta's progress, as well as that of our other winners Ed, James and Claire, and read selected entries to the competition, on our blog site:
