Youth Council Environmental Pledge
The 2020 Youth Council Environmental Group have collaborated with Sustainable King Valley as well as Wangaratta Landcare and Sustainability to develop a pledge for the Wangaratta community to partake in.
The Environmental Awareness Pledge consists of 13 items for families and individuals to follow, aiming to raise awareness for waste reduction, and provide people with a series of small contributions they can make to assist in reducing waste.
The group hope to make Wangaratta an environmentally friendly community by making them aware of the choices they make and highlighting other alternatives or reminders of a better practice.
They are hoping individuals will take this on board, make these small adjustments, get into better habits within their lives, which will ultimately contribute to large-scale change.
About Youth Council
Youth Council is a group of up to 20 young people aged between 14 – 18 years which meets regularly to discuss youth issues, help organise youth & community events and take part in leadership forums and self development activities.
Youth Council is a 12 month commitment.
• talk with other young people to learn what are the important issues to them;
• provide advice to Council to make sure that young people’s concerns are heard;
• work towards making Wangaratta a more liveable place for young people by providing young people with safe social activities and supporting community groups;
• provide young people with information;
• represent young people at Youth Council and at other public forums and functions; and
• work with other wider community groups to make your community a better place to be.
