Since 1996, Millennium Kids has enabled thousands of young people to have their say about the environment, leading to hundreds of inspiring youth-led initiatives that have contributed significantly to the environment and communities in WA and beyond.
As part of Millennium Kids commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals we have been working with hundreds of young people in local communities to develop One Thousand Actions for the Planet, a youth driven sustainability initiative.
Empowering kids now
Millennium Kids Inc encourages young people, regardless of race, religion or social capital to explore, identify and address environmental and sustainability issues in the local, regional and global communities.
Millennium Kids empowers young people to take action on the issues they care about exploring ways to solve problems through:
Education for behaviour change
Innovation and design
Rules and Regulations!
We explore the different roles and responsibilities of change makers.
The Change Agent
At Millennium Kids, we work with young people to transform their ideas into practical action projects that can be implemented in their own communities.
We work with community groups, individual kids or schools.
Millennium Kids has developed a range of tools and training programs using a ‘Skills for Life” process with students engaged in identifying sustainability opportunities and challenges through an inquiry approach, mapping them in a framework which can be used as an important component of the Sustainable School Initiative framework.
Check out the the Foundation for Young Australians Future Skills Framework 2030 for some background reading to why we do what we do.
Millennium Kids programs are co designed with young people and can be used by schools to address all three cross curriculum priorities as well as general capabilities and specific learning areas.
Millennium Kids and the Department of Education (through the Sustainable Schools Initiative WA (AuSSI-WA) work closely to provide ongoing support to schools to implement the Australian Curriculum, specifically the cross curriculum priority of sustainability.
A full list of Alliance members, with links to their respective resources, can be found on the Sustainable Schools website.
A celebration of sustainability and ingenuity, the Banksia Foundation Awards are regarded as the most prestigious and longest-running in Australia and the world. They recognise Australian individuals, communities, businesses and government for their innovation and excellence in environmental and social stewardship.
