Tackle sustainability at Youth Week

March 28, 2014

ARE you aged between 12 – 24 and are passionate about the environment?

Do you want to connect with other young people who feel the same, learn new skills, identify ways to reduce your eco-footprint and make your home and school more sustainable?

As part of National Youth Week, Alpine Shire Council is hosting a “Youth Leading the World” Sustainability and Environment Congress on Wednesday, 9 April and Thursday, 10 April.

Youth Development Officer Ebony Buckley said the congress was a fantastic way for young people to come together to meet new people and learn how to address issues of concern around climate change, sustainability, food security and the environment.

“We have partnered with sustainability and community-driven change organisation OzGreen to run this congress for two days over the school holidays,” she said.

“Trained facilitators will work with participants to gain a better understanding of their eco footprint and identify ways for them to become more sustainable in the homes, schools and communities.

“Not only will this be a great way for like-minded young people to get together for a fantastic cause, it will also be a lot of fun.”

The Congress will run at the Bright Courthouse from 10am – 5pm on Wednesday, 9 April and Thursday, 10 April.

Bookings are essential. Anyone aged between 12 – 24 is welcome to attend.

This is a free event. Morning and afternoon tea and lunch will be catered.
