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 ( 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 fourth and final in the series covering:

  • Thinking more deeply about what climate justice means.

  • What are some of the ways climate change is impacting First Nations peoples here and elsewhere? How am I impacted by climate change?

  • What are some of the useful things non-Indigenous organisations can to do to better understand climate justice and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander campaigns and communities accordingly?

  • 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.
