LANDCARE YOUTH PROGRAM

“Engaging the youth is a huge passion of mine, I didn’t receive the support when I was at school because no one knew what the possibilities were and as a young person myself, that difficulty of not knowing what to do, what was out there, the opportunities that exist…so it’s great to see a Youth Summit like this being organised.” Katherine, Landcare Coordinator, Sydney

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?

We have recently held the Landcare Youth Summit at Parliament House in Canberra where we received positive feedback, great ideas and useful tips on how landcare can help young people take action in their local communities.

We are in the process of co-designing a Landcare Youth Program, if you would like to contribute to this program please contact us on digital@landcareaustralia.com.au

On Wednesday 4 August, 2021 we will host the first ever National Landcare Youth Conference, held as a key event of the 2021 National Landcare Conference in Sydney at the ICC. If you would like to make speak at this event or get involved in any way, please contact us on digital@landcareaustralia.com.au

  • Landcarer is an online community platform especially for people like you – people who work to care for their local environment. You can set up your own group on Landcarer and connect and collaborate with people who share your passion. Landcarer also allows you to monitor and track projects with other people, share stories, photos and videos, and see what other groups are up to. And when you’re out in the field and see something you just need to share, there’s a Landcarer mobile app.
