This September local law student and environmental organiser Mindy Davies will be climbing to the base camp of Mt Everest to create awareness and action around climate change.
This year the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) is running the Climb It for the Climate project, with 30 young people from across Australia taking part in the three-week venture to climb Mt Everest and work with young women from the Himalayan Climate Initiative. They aim to inspire and train them to take action on climate change in Nepal.
Mindy will be trekking to the base camp of Mt Everest, where she will see firsthand the impacts climate change will have on the mountain.
‘Climate change is a global issue, and it is important that, as young leaders from Australia, we are engaging with young people from all over the world to work together,’ said Mindy
Lucy Manne, AYCC national co-director, said, ‘The money that Mindy raises will go to the Himalayan Climate Initiative and the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, so we can continue our campaigns and projects and truly build a strong, global youth climate movement. We are excited to work with young people for the Himalayan Climate Initiative to help them build a really strong movement to solve the climate crisis.’
