On Wednesday the 17th of August and Thursday the 18th of August 2016, Albert Park College (APC) was invited to take part in the annual Climate Change Summit held by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC). There were over 270 students total in attendance from 25 schools across Victoria.
Over the two days, a group of 10 students from APC gathered to collect more information on climate change and were also given tactics on how we can make a diference. We attended workshops to complete small group-based activities and got to learn more about climate change across Australia. Across the two days, we met students from other schools and built strong friendships with not only each other but the environment-friendly community.
On the last day of the summit, we all walked down to parliament house and gave speeches to Members of Parliaments from diferent electorates, including our local MP, the Honourable Martin Foley. We talked about our school and what we aim to do over the next few years. Overall, it was a really exciting, educative and awesome program that I am proud to be a part of.
