An ever increasing selection of digital media is testament to the growth, reach and potential of the program Internationally.
1st International “It’s our future earth” Conference in the tropical island of Mauritius for Young Persons’ Plan for the Planet 29 Nov-01 Dec, 2018
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 IOFE 2.0 conference, building on the high standard set last year at Parliament House, Questacon and ANU in Canberra, Australia. Over 120 delegates from Mauritius, Singapore and Australia were genuinely thankful for the opportunity to deep dive and participate in this very challenging and rewarding conference, to create the foundation for the first ever international Young Persons’ Plan for the Planet. Thanks to our co-hosts Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre, Curtin Mauritius, Mauritius Commercial Bank and SRD plus partners Future Earth Australia and Frank Fenner Foundation. To start, just a few highlights below in pictures and yes, we’ll let you know when the plan is ready for publication. Until then, develop the discussion and 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 with them 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 this world first plan, consider the input process from hundreds of High School students with their first attempt to produce this book. It is 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. The alumni and new students are keen and in process of mentoring students in Mauritius, who are just completing their first ever plan too. 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
