Sustainability Youth Forum
Posted in Events by Ferne Edwards on August 11th, 2008
Do you have an idea or vision for a Sustainable Australia? Are you interested to take it further but don’t know how? Then the Sustainability Youth Forum is for you!
On Saturday 6 Sept., the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ) provides you with an opportunity to join with other inspired and enthusiastic students and young professionals to debate and develop a pathway for creating a sustainable future. The forum will feature Dr Paul Sinclair from the Australian Conservation Foundation as keynote speaker and a number of high-profile facilitators, sparking the discussion around four priority areas – water, climate change, waste and social sustainability.
The forum will result in four position papers that capture your perspective on these priority areas. These position papers will be published in the EIANZ publication – the Environmental Practitioner, while also enabling you to promote the outcomes to the media and table them with government, getting your ideas heard.
So, if you’re aged between 15 and 30, are either studying, working or interested in the sustainability field, you are eligible to apply. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to network with other future leaders in envisioning your sustainable future for Australia!
Date: Saturday 6 September
Where: Level 7, RMIT Storey Hall, Swanston St, Melbourne
Time: 8.45am to 5pm (lunch and morning and afternoon tea provided)
Cost: $20 (discounted to $15 for EIANZ members)
Applications close: Wed 20 Aug. Places are limited, so hurry don’t miss out!
