The recent bushfires have had a devastating impact on Australia. Families have lost loved ones, thousands of homes have been destroyed, ancient forests have been decimated and countless animals have been injured and killed. Young people are distressed and anxious.
Youth Leading the World (YLTW) is an award winning program that equips young people with skills to address environmental challenges. The program inspires innovative action and enables young people to become leaders of positive change locally and globally.
Our program will allow bushfire victims to voice their concerns, create a new vision for the future and develop action plans that achieve positive social and environmental outcomes for their communities. YLTW is designed to generate hope.
This Christmas why not give a gift to someone you do not know and you will never meet, but who will be forever grateful that you thought of them. Donate a small amount of money and you can provide a family with the basic necessities which we, in Australia take for granted.
It is difficult to describe the extent of the concern our community felt for our river in 2015, when we lost an estimated 90% of our beautiful turtles in an approximate 6-week period. Bellingen Riverwatch has empowered our community to transform their concern into dedicated, constructive action.
We need your help to extend our reach and equip more young people to become the change makers our environment needs. We have no doubt that these young people are going to have a positive impact on people, communities and the environment, as many of our existing leaders have. Make more of an impact and become a 'Youth Leading the World Global Seeder'. Your donation allows us to provide training for more young people and enable them to become advocates and change-makers for the environment.
We thank you for your support because we simply can't do it without you.
