Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
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 of young people committed to taking action to reduce carbon pollution in their homes, schools TAFEs, Universities and communities.Switched on Schools: The AYCC ran eight 1 and 2 day summits for high school students around Australia, including one in Alice Springs. These summits educated around 1000 students to plan sustainability projects in their schools. AYCC volunteers delivered around 300 presentations, educating 10,000 students on sustainability and climate change. From these summits, students have delivered over 80 ongoing sustainability projects in their schools, such as paper recycling programs, planting vegie gardens and running educational film nights These projects directly improve sustainability outcomes for local communities, empower young people to participate as active citizens and reduces carbon pollution in tangible ways.Power Shift: In July 2013, the AYCC held a training summit in Melbourne for over 1500 young people. Over 3 days the summit participants were educated on climate change, personal development and community action, and built working groups to take sustainability projects back to their local communities. SEED: In FY2014 AYCC launched SEED, Australias first Indigenous youth climate network. 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. SEED participants engage in sustainability projects in their communities to protect land, educate their peers and reduce pollution in their hometowns.Training of our grassroots network: In FY2014 the AYCC held two national training summits that brought together over 200 AYCC leaders from across Australia. Hundreds more young people were trained at state-wide and local training camps in every state and territory.. At these summits, young people are trained in climate science, sustainability and leadership, plan projects, learn personal development and build connections for ongoing sustainability engagement in their local communities. Grassroots activities the AYCCs grassroots network continues to thrive, with over 130 local groups of young people across Australia in every capital city and many regional centres. 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.
