Summary of activities

The Principal Purpose of the AYCC is to protect Australias natural environment from climate change by educating young Australians to build a generation-wide movement committed to taking action to reduce carbon pollution in their homes, schools TAFEs, Universities and communities. SEED: In FY2017 Seed, a branch of the AYCC and Australias first indigenous youth climate network doubled the size and reach of its grassroots network to over 200 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island young people. Seed brings our educational and leadership programs to a wider demographic of young people, giving opportunities to young people often missed by youth development programs. 218 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people attended our National Leadership Summit in Melbourne. In 2017, we also launched a Seed high school program pilot in Victoria and reached over 200 students with our climate change presentations. Within our Northern Territory campaign we had over 5000 conversations in Northern communities about climate change, the impact on communities and ways of encountering climate change.Training: In July 2017, the AYCC hosted a National Leadership Summit in Melbourne for 800 young participants. Participants received broad-based training to become educated and committed to protecting the natural environment and our climate. Over three days the summit participants built networks, learned key skills, attended workshops, plenaries and planned for positive impacts in their communities.Switched on Schools: Switched on Schools is AYCCs high school program that has been running for five years across Australia. In 2017, we engaged 20,000 students in 120 workshops and 6 summits. Summits are two-day events where high school students and teachers come together to learn about climate change, sustainability and how to create change in their schools and local communities. This year, we held our third Melbourne Climate Justice Summit with 25 workshops around climate change, campaign planning and community organising to equip students with essential skills to take action against climate change and take steps to make their schools and communities more sustainable. Inspired by these summits, 80 students engaged in the national Student Climate Action Network which builds student networks across the country.Grassroots Activities: The AYCCs grassroots network of 850 volunteers continues to thrive, with over 40 local groups of young people across Australia in every capital city and many regional centers. Our advocacy campaign work on the ground focussed on calling on the Federal Government to adopt safe climate policy, increase investment in renewable energy and keep fossil fuels in the ground. Donations to the AYCC ensure that these groups can continue to provide educational resources and engagement in sustainability opportunities to their communities, reach new demographics of young people, and provide support to local groups who want to learn about climate change.
