The AYCC Solidarity Training is usually an in-person 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.

Due to our COVID19 context, we'll be delivering this Solidarity Training in multiple sessions - this workshop is the second in the series covering:

  • This session invites people to think about the history of this country. The struggles, wins, losses and the impacts of all of this on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We encourage people to understand the diversity of cultures and nations, alongside different histories and lived experiences.
  • This session is also about deliberately starting with some of the strengths of resistance and survival, rather than focusing on the problems facing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and defining people by deficits and negative stereotypes.
  • This time together will set the scene for going deeper, thinking about the impacts of colonisation on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and some of the contemporary challenges and issues.
  • This session will also support you to think about what you might need to make your solidarity work to be deeper, effective and long lasting.

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.

We would like to acknowledge that wherever we are, we are on stolen Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge the leadership of Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network in the fight for land rights and climate justice, and work towards a decolonised future free of capitalism, colonialism and the patriarchy that continues to marginalise communities on this continent.
