February 12, 2019 By Eliza Herbert Beyond Your Command: Youth Activism Today – a Wheeler Centre Event We’re very excited to be partnering with the Wheeler Centre on an event showcasing the incredible activism and work of young people in Australia. On the streets, on the airwaves and online – a new generation of young Australian activists are speaking up and demanding action on climate change, Indigenous self-determination, queer rights and more. In this conversation, we’ll hear from leading young Australian voices across intersecting political movements. They’ll discuss the tide of youth activism sweeping many parts of the globe, and the increasing appetite for challenging the status quo here at home. What would this country look like if young people were seen, heard and taken seriously? What does advocacy look like for young people whose voices haven’t traditionally been sought? And how might we change our political institutions to ensure the future is not hostage to the whims and debts of the presently powerful? Join us for a conversation about action, strategy and staking claims on the future. When: Wednesday 3 April 2019, 6.15pm-7.15pm at The Wheeler Centre This is a free event. Reserve your spot today.
