Event description

Description

Do you think every Victorian should have access to green space and clean air, the ability to raise their concerns about environmental pollution and access to information on environmental issues so they can make informed decisions?

The opportunity

We’re looking for up to 20 young Victorians (aged 18–25) to join our focus group on environmental justice here at YACVic and share your opinions with the Victorian Government.

Why does the Victorian Government want to talk to young people about environmental justice?

Victoria has a strong record of environmental protection and social justice, however, a recent independent panel appointed by the government found that there is no consistent whole-of-government approach to ensuring environmental justice.

In 2018, the Victorian Government is exploring how it could approach the issue of environmental justice. This approach has already been informed by engagement with business, industry, local government, and community organisations and members – and now it's your chance!

The consultation will be facilitated by Capire Consulting Group who are supporting the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in undertaking consultation with the public.

What will I get from this?

Not only will you get to have your voice heard but you’ll get a free lunch and a $50 EFTPOS gift card for your involvement!

Register

If you are aged 18–25 and interested in attending please register via Eventbrite here or contact Sam Champion, Participation and Development Coordinator at YACVic via 0438 072 200 or email pdc@yacvic.org.au.

We especially encourage young people who are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, who are from refugee or migrant backgrounds, who have an experience of out-of-home care, and/or who have a disability, to join us. We are looking for a diverse representation of young people and so if you would like to discuss whether this is a good fit for you or how we can support you to attend then please let us know.

There will be limited spots for those under 18, so if you are under 18 and really keen to participate please get in touch to discuss.

YACVic is a child safe organisation. By attending these events, you agree to join us in our commitment to child safety.
