Announcing the 2nd international “It’s Our Future Earth” Conference in Singapore for Young Persons’ Plan for the Planet 4-6 Dec, 2019
Absolutely inspiring speakers (both student and invited), venues, delegates, hosts, vibe, friendships, learning, understanding, planning and implementation all rolled into 3 busy days of workshops, touring, thinking and resolving. Cross-cultural connections and collaboration were highlights of the first international conference in 2018 where over 120 delegates from Mauritius, Singapore and Australia had the opportunity to deep dive and participate in this very challenging and rewarding conference, to create the exciting foundation for the now international Young Persons’ Plan for the Planet program. Thanks to our 2019 co-hosts Singapore Science Centre and Curtin Singapore plus partners Questacon, Future Earth Australia and the Frank Fenner Foundation. To start, just a few highlights below in pictures and yes, we’ll let you know when the Young Singaporeans’ plan for the Planet plan is ready for publication. Until then spread the word that YPPP could be coming to a high school near you, (especially if you lay the groundwork). So where should we have our next conference? Have a conversation in your school and send us your suggestions for high schools, countries & possible future venues.

Young Australians’Plan for the Planet program PLAN Version 1.0
Before you review the world-first plan, consider the input process from hundreds of High School students with their first attempt to produce this book. It was designed to be the initial plan. One to be much further developed and to grow and change to be fully relevant to the region, state and country of origin. It’s also a discussion starter that everyone can respond and contribute towards. And all this while giving focus, voice and empowerment to youth to implement and deliver all the 17 UN SDGs. This is a feat never attempted before and no other group we have seen addresses all the 17 goals, logically reviews and prioritises what IS being done and what NEEDS to be done in each of the 20 EcoZones across Australia that participated.
Now in 2019, the Australian and Mauritian alumni are keen and in the process of mentoring new students, in Singapore and very soon in India and Kenya, who are just completing or starting their first-ever plan. This can be and fully intends to be an ongoing process of inspiration, review, discovery, learning, redesign and planning to reach every part of the world.
And you’re helping too. So, please keep all this in mind while you have a good read… National Sustainable Development Goals Plan for Australia by Young Australians’ Plan for the Planet
