Jaden Harris

Jaden Harris is the co-founder and coordinator of the Sydney Youth Climate Action Network. SYCAN was founded in 2009 at an Oz Green’s Youth Leading Australia congress. We started with about 30 members and most of us were in year 8 and 9. Our first year was filled with successes including Green Mob, where we all dressed in Green and wore Green body paint then flash mobbed in Manly Corso to ask people “what size are you?” and measure their eco footprints. We also helped organise Greenfeat, an environmentally themed Youth Week event with Manly and Warringah Councils. We gained heaps of new members and had dozens of successful street stalls. We then decided to start to build the network and create Branches around Sydney. First we had Northern Beaches and Inner West groups. Today, almost 2 years later we have branches in the North Shore, Northern Beaches, Inner West and Sutherland Shire. We now have over 650 members and are continuing to create new branches across Sydney. Jaden was winner of NSW-ACT Young Achiever of the Year in 2015

 

Jody Hammond 

Jody has had more than 25 years experience in journalism, marketing, public relations and events management.  She recently sold her award-winning public relations business, Write Away Communication + Events, allowing her to spend more time on projects which accord with her personal values to promote sustainability and environmental awareness.  In the past, Jody has held many positions in community groups using her expertise in PR and marketing as well as business development and education to help fulfil their goals.

Why OzGreen?

I’ve always had a personal interest in sustainable practices, a genuine love of our land and a desire to help others.  I am particularly passionate about ensuring our youths are well-educated, informed and develop great self-esteem.   I have been observing some of the work OzGreen has done over the past couple of years and with those small insights have been attracted to its core principles, values and work the organisation undertakes.   I am hoping that my skills and experience will be of benefit to the organisation whether it be media training, networking or general management.
