Training - Solidarity with First Nations People - AYCC VIC
***THIS TRAINING IS BEING POSTPONED UNTIL POST COVID-19 TIMES. However, we are currently in the process of developing an online program to deliver this trainings - if you are interested in hearing more about an online option for this, please RSVP!***
The AYCC solidarity training is a one-day training targeted at non-Indigenous young people (under 30 years of age) who are currently volunteering or wanting to volunteer with AYCC. The training has been written by Karrina Nolan from Original Power (https://www.originalpower.org.au/) and has been developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, but will be run by non-Indigenous people.
This is an essential opportunity to develop core solidarity skills, and to learn from First Nations people, who continue to fight at the forefront of the climate justice movement.
*Please note: If you're not under 30, nor looking to volunteer with the AYCC, this training is unfortunately not for you! This session has been designed for AYCC volunteers and those who are looking to actively volunteer with the AYCC.
It is designed to:
- Increase the capacity of AYCC staff and volunteers to work in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, including Seed staff and volunteers.
- Provide people with a sense of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, resistance and contemporary issues (and resources to continue learning beyond this training).
- Build people’s knowledge of and commitment to climate justice.
- Support people to have the resources and skills to put their solidarity learning into practice.
Snacks and tea will be provided, but please BYO lunch!
