Youth River Symposium Success!

Millennium Kids together with the Swan River Trust and St Hildas Anglican School for Girls held the inaugural Swan-Canning River Park Youth Forum at St Hilda’s Junior School.   Running parallel to the International River Symposium, the forum involved teachers and students from 16 schools arcoss the Perth metropolitan areas.

Students identified their concerns for the river. These concerns included the amount of rubbish in the river, the dolphin deaths and the descruction of fauna habitat for development. They then boarded a Captain Cook Ferry and were able to experience the river from a different point of view and again an understanding how the river has changed over time.

With this knowledge, the students developed a set a recommendations that were presented to the adults of the International River Symposium on Wednesday 13th October 2010.
