Congratulations to Sarah Hall, Pure Advantage New Zealand Winner

Pure Advantage Press Release- 22 September 2011

“Congratulations to Sarah Hall, the winner of our Expedition to Antarctica video competition. Sarah was selected from a pool of 10 finalists by polar explorer Robert Swan to accompany him and his 2041 crew on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Antarctica in February next year.”

Sarah’s passion, vision, and motivation to act to achieve green growth in New Zealand was clear in her video and even more so in her final interview with Robert where she emerged as the winner. If you haven’t a chance yet, check out her submission below; and watch this space for footage of the interviews and updates on Sarah’s journey to Antarctica next year.

Well done to all our other finalists and entrants, everyone of whom put in a huge effort to convey their unique visions for NZ’s future as a green economy. There was a great range of different approaches and ideas from this group of inspirational young New Zealanders. All their videos are still viewable now in the Expedition to Antarctica gallery.”

“New Zealand has strong ties to Antarctica and history of helping preserve and protect its environment. What I learn from the Antarctica experience I will apply in this country to help create a clean green economy and support Pure Advantage in its quest to turn our natural advantages into greater wealth for all New Zealanders” – Sarah

Robert Swan would like to welcome Sarah and we look forward to this opportunity of sharing an experience of a lifetime with you as a member of IAE 2012 as well as the lifelong journey you are about to embark on for green growth in New Zealand. 2041 would also like to say Thank You to Pure Advantage for this opportunity for a future champion as well as joining our mission to inspire the next generation of leaders to take responsibility, be sustainable, and know that now is the time for action in policy development and sustainable business generation.
