Local youth speak about their concerns and activism around the climate emergency.

The climate emergency is top of mind for Australian youth. As part of National Youth Week the Green Living Centre is hosting a youth-led conversation on the climate emergency for 16-24 year olds. Come along to hear four inspiring young speakers discuss how they take personal or collective action, while taking care of themselves.

The panel will feature:

  • Annika Reynolds, founder of environmental law research institute GreenLaw
  • Louise Qiu, multidisciplinary artist and founder of vegan clothing brand ENDIMALS
  • Zahra Wilson, advocate for sustainable farming and plant-based diets
  • April Crawford-Smith, co-founder of Pingala and advocate for connected, sustainable communities, including at The Valley Centre.

This conversation will be co-facilitated with Christie Wilson, eco-psychotherapist and climate activist whose work helps transform people’s despair into effective action.

This workshop is suitable for youth 16 to 24 years of age.

Please arrive by 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start.

Vegan pizza and snacks will be available.
