Strikers! Youth leading change panel Part of Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising
Lecture theatre: Level 2
 

Our Australian youth have already identified what many adults have failed to recognise – that the climate crisis is an opportunity to rethink the way the world operates. In collaboration with our MCA Youth Committee and Young Guides, hear why climate change matters to young people, the strategies they use to engage politicians and the biggest barriers for change that they face.

Presented as a part of Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising, a weekend of art, discussion and action.

A strike for climate

In 2018–19, we have seen over 200 youth-led strikes occur around the globe, including here in Australia. Adding to our history of youth-led strikes, tens of thousands of young Australians have walked out of their classrooms to stage protests in capital cities demanding action on climate change.

Tired of watching their future sacrificed by a government dominate by climate science deniers, these young people have all refused to sit back and let others dictate the future of Earth.
