MEDIA RELEASE: February 21, 2020

From plans to reduce waste in the schoolyard to improving the efficiency of lighting in classrooms, Hunters Hill students brainstormed a wealth of innovative ideas at a 2020 Youth Summit.

Representatives from Hunters Hill and Riverside Girls high schools participated in the summit on February 20 at Hunters Hill Town Hall.

Hunter’s Hill Council hosted the summit, which was facilitated by professional training and coaching organisation FRANK.

Schools nominated students who were passionate about creating change in the world.

The purpose of the summit was to bring representatives aged 11 to 18 years from local schools together with a goal to develop real projects that reduce litter or divert waste from landfill.

Projects that addressed well-being were also discussed.

Students worked in teams on project plans and pitched these to their peers, teachers, facilitators and Council representatives.

Council will now consider the projects and potential ways to support and deliver them.
