Sustainability and youth: Taking unified action


Guests in The Sustainable Youth Hour on 28 November 2018 are three students from Sacred Heart Collage in Geelong, just back from a sustainability camp, and four English language students from Deakin University in Geelong: Yuya, Mami and Nanami from Japan, and Charlie from Vietnam.

We interview Laura Kelly and Jude Corbett, students at Kardinia International College, about why they mobilised a school strike for climate action in Geelong on 23 November 2018.

We meet Kerri Jenkins, teacher at St Joseph’s College in Geelong, who talks about what’s required to make a sustainability program become a success in the school. She calls her recipe “FICAS”: Ensuring that the program is Fun and is Focused on Incentive, delivers Comparable data, is Achieveable – dream big, but make sure it is achievable! – and has the necessary Support from the principal, the school board and other key people in the school.

We bring Lene Foghsgaard’s second ‘Sustainable People’ segment, which today is about Black Friday.

We kick the hour off with short statements by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Senator Jordon Steele-John, and 10-year-old Lilly from Utrecht in Holland, who runs Lilly’s Plastic Pickup, followed by Collin Mockett’s Global Outlook on the latest global sustainability index and how Australia ranks in this index.


A three-minute report from the ‘school strike’ for climate action in Geelong, Australia, with interviews with some of the students who bravely walked out from their different schools in Geelong on Friday 23 November 2018.

School strikers: “What we are doing here today is change”

Acknowledgement

We at The Sustainable Hour would like to pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we are broadcasting, the Wathaurong People, and pay our respect to their elders, past, present and future.

The traditional owners lived in harmony with the environment and with the climate for hundreds of generations. It is not clear – yet – that as European settlers we have demonstrated that we can live in harmony for hundreds of generations, but it is clear that we can learn from the indigenous, traditional owners of this land.

When we talk about the future, it means extending our respect to those children not yet born, the generations of the future – remembering the old saying that…



The decisions currently being made around Australia to ignore climate change are being made by those who won’t be around by the time the worst effects hit home. How utterly disgusting, disrespectful and unfair is that?
