It’s been a strange, unsettling sort of start to 2020 in Australia, with our leaders (mostly kinda) MIA, the catastrophic flames of climatechange forcing us to collectively face new realities about the future of life on this patch of planet – and now an unprecedented global health emergency declared with the outbreak of Coronavisrus…
For Australia to solve for the long-term, it’s clear we need a new breed of NextGen leaders who can think big, start small and advocate for the change we need to see in our climate policies, environmental practices, new economy business conduct and engagement of increasingly diverse and marginalised communities.
Zoos Victoria just may have the answer to that with the launch of the 2020 Youth Leadership program designed especially for students in Years 9-11.
The 13-day intensive application-only program is designed to upskill and immerse young change-makers in conservation issues so they can inspire others to create local action and catalyse global change.
Applications close Monday 24 February, 2020.
