Environmental Leadership with Young People

Environmental Leadership with Young People

On 21st November, Synchronicity Earth invited over 100 12 to 18 year olds and their families to an event that marked a milestone in young peoples’ environmental leadership.

Your Century! – a multi-workshop and knowledge base experience – gave participants the space to actively explore their relationship to the planet as never before through encounters with environmental activists, spoken word artists, film-makers, artists and explorers – all seeking to challenge prevailing myths and nurture a more engaged way of living.

There were 19 speakers and workshop leaders, 15 partner organisations, a facilitation team of 18 (9 experienced and 9 youth facilitators), 7 rooms and 130 participants in total. We had meditation, drumming, singing, dancing, stories, jelly babies, a yurt and closing circle in which young people performed theatrical spoken word pieces fearlessly.

Your Century! was organised by Synchronicity Earth. Here’s a video overview of the event, and a brochure.
