The challenges presented by a changing climate will be front of mind for more than 200 students taking part in Sunshine Coast Council’s annual Kids in Action program tomorrow (Friday, September 7).

Students from 22 schools across the region will gather to share their findings, thoughts and ideas on how to build on our climate adaptation efforts at the Kawana Shoppingworld Kids Teaching Kids conference.

This year’s Kids in Action theme is Changing Climates – Changing Lives – focusing on the implications of climate change both locally and across the globe.

The theme asks students to consider how we and other species are adapting to climate-related changes and what the opportunities are to build resilience and inspire positive change.

The Kids teaching Kids conference marks the end of months of work and research for the students, who will share their ideas and learnings with students from across the region in an engaging, empowering and educational experience.

Students will present projects to their peers and teachers on a range of topics from microscopic plankton and fast fashion to methane emissions and a declaration of Earth Rights.

The projects, workshops and displays at this year’s conference were inspired by a field day held earlier this year, with students exploring rock pools, tagging and planting trees, learning about the region’s cultural history and geological future to inform presentations they will give to their fellow students.

Sunshine Coast Council is proud to deliver this program through our Environment Levy with the support of our major sponsors - Unitywater and Kawana Shoppingworld.
