The Australian Youth Climate Coalition

The Program

The Program

In 2014 we’re expanding the program to empower Indigenous youth with the inspiration, skills and networks to continue sowing the seeds for Indigenous youth-led action on climate change.

  • Alice Springs high school sustainability summit: We’re bringing together high school students to kickstart action in their schools-  find out more here!

  • Indigenous Youth Climate Summit: On October 4th, 5th and 6th we’re bringing together 30-50 young people in Melbourne to sow the seeds of Indigenous youth-led action - register here!

  • Regional training and support: more info coming soon!

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations looked after the land for tens of thousands of years, and there is a huge amount we can learn from Australia’s Traditional Owners about tackling climate change and protecting country. As the elders of the future, it’s important that young Indigenous Australians have opportunities for leadership and mentoring.  We also know Indigenous peoples are often disproportionately affected by climate change impacts.

This is why Indigenous communities need to be front and centre of our efforts to solve climate change - and why at the AYCC it is our responsibility to ensure that Indigenous youth are leaders of our generation-wide movement
