In September we will host a 1-day Youth Eco Summit (YES) for secondary schools. The 2017 Youth Eco Summit will provide Stages 4&5 with a unique opportunity to share their sustainability projects, successes, innovations and ideas in a new and exciting event format. This summit will include student drama, film, music, debate, TED-style talks and global video exchanges. Participants will be highly engaged, with special guests facilitating feedback and interaction throughout the day via evolving art-works, social media activities, audience polling and more.

In November, YES  for primary schools will return again in the award winning festival format that people know and love. The event will include 2 days packed with interactive workshops and displays engaging Stages 2 and 3 with all aspects of sustainability in action.

Dates

Feedback from previous YES event

"The stalls and workshops were excellent, the presenters were all really engaging and the boys loved all the freebies!! The atmosphere was really relaxed, but still very organised. They great thing about it was the students were learning while having fun and there was so much choice. Count us in for next year." (Epping Boys High School)
