Boosting youth participation in pest management

Landscape management is an intergenerational issue, and it’s vital that young people are included in the conversation about how to address the problem of pests and weeds.

Boosting youth involvement is an opportunity to strengthen community-led approaches to invasive species management.

Learn how you can support young people to have a voice in invasive species management.

Monday 6 May, Melbourne Museum, Carlton, Victoria

This free workshop is a one-day training event for people who have a real desire see young people connected with the management of our landscapes.

Applications are welcome from individuals involved with community or farming groups, Landcare, universities and TAFEs, Catchment Management Authorities, government agencies or other non-government and for-profit organisations with responsibilities in land or invasive species management.

Community volunteers can be reimbursed for their out-of-pocket travel expenses to attend.

The workshop is part of the Weeds and Rabbits Project’s youth engagement initiative which also includes a competitive grants program to be launched later in 2019. You can have your say on what the workshop and grants program looks like in our survey.
