Project description

When young people need to get down to the business of making change they need mentoring and support.

Millennium Kids, a Western Australian environmental youth organisation, will do just that when they bring a team of young people from Sumbawa, Indonesia to Perth in October 2017 to learn how we deal with waste management and education Western Australia.

The We SAVE team have identified waste as a major threat to their way of life and are keen to develop local solutions to their problems.

The series of workshops and field trips have been planned to address their issues, bringing together young people 10 – 25 years, teachers, waste educators and industry partners in an information share process.

The team will join Millennium Kids to learn from each other, co-design solutions and develop a waste education and management strategy to create innovative solutions to waste management in rural Sumbawa.
