The summit will be the kick-starter for a youth lead climate justice network. By participating in the summit you will:

  • Connect with other leaders in your community and join an ongoing network
  • Increase your understanding of climate change and solutions.
  • Gain confidence and inspiration to create change within your personal life, social circles and the broader community.

The Climate Summit event is a full day of interactive activities, discussions and planning; designed to boost your knowledge, confidence and understanding of your role as leaders. We will investigate key sustainability themes, build on or create a new action plan for your school and celebrate the work completed.

You will plan and develop a campaign through communication, behaviour change and collaboration, discover ways to advocate for change within society, including your school and the wider community.

The Merri-bek Student Climate Summit is a partnership with CERES and Merri-bek City Council.
