The Power of Young People: a Q&A session with a School Strike 4 Climate leader

Come along to the Centre of Democracy on 14 July to hear a Q&A session with one of the leaders of the Adelaide chapter of the School Strike 4 Climate (SS4C) movement. The SS4C movement in Australia coordinated Friday school strike action around the country in 2021 to allow young people the chance to be heard by policy makers. It is a part of the international movement that has seen millions of school students around the world take to the streets.

Anjali Beames will share with us her insights into active citizenship for under-18s and how and why she got involved in the movement for climate action. Hear some of her reflections on youth engagement with politics and why you don’t have to wait until you’re 18 to have an impact in your community.

This event is connected to the display The Power of Protest: Young People’s Climate Action. Placards made by students for the strikes will be on display alongside photos of the protests taken by photographer Neville Cichon.

Event is free, but bookings required.

All ages welcome!
