Landcare Youth Summit

December 1

Facilitated by Landcare Ambassador Sophie Taylor-Price – climate change and sustainability consultant, and granddaughter of Landcare champion Bob Hawke, this pilot launch event will serve as a platform for young people looking to be inspired and get ideas on how to take action with Landcare activities that will protect their local environment.

Young people will discuss project ideas, career pathways and the know-how to join existing Landcare groups and/or create their own groups through a series of panel discussions and workshops with young experts in:

  • climate change
  • conservation
  • sustainable agriculture
  • Indigenous perspectives
  • community well-being.

The Landcare Youth Summit on December 1 is an online conference event for 20 high schools from across Australia. This is a small pilot online conference event for young adults aged between 14 and 18 years. The event will also involve a small group of young panelists and workshop facilitators. The panel sessions will be recorded and made available on the Landcare Australia website. The outcomes of the summit will help to create a program for the National Landcare Youth Summit in August, 2021.

High Schools involved in the program will participate in four workshops and be provided with a $1,000 grant to start their own Landcare project at school or in their local community.
