Over the last few weeks our Citizen Assembly youth team have been actively networking, pitching our Citizen Assembly on Climate Change ideas and getting feedback. We even showed our film to the Sir Tim Smit of Eden Project at our MK2030 event recently.

The TEDxPerth Countdown: Climate Leadership Summit event in November was a great opportunity for some of our team to connect with changemakers and hear from some amazing people doing their bit to get climate on the agenda.

Bella B, one of our MK youth leaders, spoke to Prof Fiona Stanley at the event about the teams’ commitment to climate change and discussed the need to have some hard hitting adults supporting the kids’ ideas for the future. The team talked up their commitment to delivering a Youth Led Citizen Assembly on Climate Change in Mandurah alongside the AAEE Biennial Conference next year, 28th September to 30 October 2021.

I met with James Lush, from Lush, and Mark Andrich, from Sustainability Platform, this week as they will be supporting and mentoring our team in the lead up to 2021.

We are now looking for 50 Climate Champions, 10 to 24 years to to help with the project. If you are interested in climate change, have some event management, technology or communication skills and want to learn about deliberative democracy then we want you on our team.  We will be meeting for a day of activity and action on Sunday 17th January 2021 to plan the future. Please bellap@milenniumkids.com.au for more information.
