    How does it feel to be a young person facing a climate-different future? More importantly, what can you do about it?

COVID, COVID, COVID! That’s all anyone talks about these days.

 

Frustrating isn’t it when you know that climate change is the other massive issue of our time and it hardly gets any attention?

Clean Energy Nillumbik is hosting two sessions on Saturday 27 February to bring together Nillumbik’s teens and young adults to talk about how it feels to be a young person facing a climate-different future. Importantly, participants will dream up what practical action can be taken around Nillumbik and beyond to influence the way our community thinks about climate change.

If you are between 13 and 21, and would like to talk to like-minded peers about what you can do as individuals or a group, then join us for a very different start to 2021. This is where to go if you want to take some action but don’t know where to start.

There will also be a guest appearance from Nillumbik local, Katta O’Donnell – she's suing the Australian Government for failing to address climate change.

Saturday 27 February @ Senior Citizens Centre, Library Place, Eltham

  • Session 1:  10am to 12pm

  • Session 2:  1.30pm to 3.30pm

Because of pesky COVID we have limited places available. Grab your friends or come alone and make some new ones.

 

You need to register for the morning or the afternoon session above. Bring your mask and water bottle so we all stay safe on the day.

 

Current COVID-19 restrictions do not allow us to hold an indoor gathering. If restrictions change before the event, we will go ahead as planned. If restrictions do not change we will move the event to Saturday 24 April. We will contact you and let you know before the day what’s happening. Go ahead and register your interest now so you don’t miss out.

 

This event is funded by Council’s Practically Green and organised by Clean Energy Nillumbik which is holding a wide range of free events and activities to RE-energise our community in 2021.

This event is being facilitated by Diamond Creek adolescent psychologist Dr Anna Johnson with the assistance of Clean Energy Nillumbik (CEN) and is funded by Nillumbik Shire Council.
