Youth 4 Arctic Australia
Welcome from the Youth4Planet team in Australia!
Recent fires across Australia, flash floods in Northern NSW and Queensland, and drought stricken farming communities –our climate system is becoming more unstable and this is starting to see even bigger swings in the system. When people say that their weather is getting more un reliable, what they are really saying is that Climate Change is destabilising what has been a very stable climate system for the last 10,000 years! We are passionate to give Young People a VOICE, to allow them to be heard and above all to help them bring thier new ideas about carbon footprint reductions to life.
We are excited to be working with the Lane Beachly “Reach for the Stars” foundation and AIME foundation which aimes to help indigenous peopels from acorss Australia.
We will send TWO Australian teenagers to represent the Voice of our Youth to the Arctic to join a global youth expedition team to observe, learn and to experience on climate change, environment and animal habitats.
Coming back, they will be our Australian Climate Change Youth Champions and will share their experiences and help to motivate our communities to reduce their carbon footprint.
