Well hey there!
We’re Lovisa and Maddie, State Coordinators of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition in South Australia.
Here in SA we have an incredible opportunity. We’re home to Port Augusta, a town home to one of Australia's dirtiest coal fired power stations, and replace it with Australia’s first concentrated solar thermal station.
This means we always have something to get involved with: our Action Group network is spread across Adelaide rolling out the Repower Port Augusta campaign, joining actions to save our Renewable Energy Target, our Schools Team delivering inspiring presentations and mentoring school groups and our Events and Fundraising Team organising big fundraisers and events!
In September of 2012, we organised a 2000 person ‘Rally for Solar’ to support the Repower Port Augusta campaign and helped coordinate the 328km Walk for Solar. Early in 2013 we reached 10, 000 people about the campaign and knocked on thousands of doors promoting our Community Forum. In 2014, we ran a game changing clean energy campaign that has seen the RET saved (for now) - there is never a dull moment at AYCC SA.
