BREAKING NEWS:
Yes, it is Earth Week and COP23 is winding down. World leaders are been talking about climate change and so have the Kids. Today at 10.30am Prof Lyn Beazley will launch our Young People and Climate Change: Perceptions and Concerns Survey – a partnership between Medical Scholarly Activity students, Aaron and Hong, from the Medical Faculty of University of Western Australia and Millennium Kids.

Since 2015 the Kids have increasingly been using such words as ‘anxious’ and refer to their ‘growing sense of worry’ when talking about climate change and their future. The issue of a changing climate comes up all there time in all areas of Mk work regardless of socio economic status, location or cultural background and this got the Kids thinking. Is this worry, this anxiousness, causing an impact on young people’s health and well being?

So  we are giving them opportunity to have a say.
If you are 7 – 25 years check out the survey and spread the word. Check in with your parents if you are under 18.
