The energy transition: it’s super complicated, right? According to one researcher, it’s actually something a child could understand.
Amy’s Balancing Act, written by ANU’s Dr Bjorn Sturmberg and illustrated by Laura Stitzel, is a fable about clean energy. It aims to explain the complications of the energy transition to children, their families, and educators.
In this video, Cosmos chats with Bjorn about why you’d want to write a children’s book on energy and the transition to renewables, and what he hopes it will achieve.
