The Landcare Youth Summit webinar | Thursday, 3 December at 4pm (AEDT)
There is a lot of noise in the media and society today about the environment and adapting to a changing climate. Children are activists’ online and on the streets at protest marches, but what else can young people do to make a difference? How can landcare groups support young people get involved in taking action for the environment with Landcare?
Going outdoors into the natural environment also has benefits on your mental and physical wellbeing, following the impacts of Covid, being connected to the natural environment is important now more than ever. So if every young person in Australia got their hands dirty in their local community, it would have an impact at a national and global scale.
The Landcare Youth Summit Webinar provides everyone an opportunity hear from two speakers Adelaide teens Skye Dunn, 16 and Mitchell Livington, 17 – members of South Australia’s YACCA (Youth & Community in Conservation Action) about the insights from speakers and students at the Landcare Youth Summit to be held on December 1. The webinar will be hosted by Landcare Ambassador Sophie Taylor-Price and we will include a discussion on we can arm the next generation with the knowledge, tools and ideas to preserve this unique landscape by taking action with Landcare.
