Watch how a new generation engages with sustainability

Sydney Olympic Park is a place for many activities, one of which is learning!

Recently, Sydney Olympic Park Authority partnered with Western Sydney University and the NSW Department of Education to put on a unique event called YES – Youth Eco Summit.

Now in its fifth year, the event’s aim is to inspire school students, both primary and secondary, through hands-on learning to engage with real world sustainability challenges.

One student attending the event described sustainability so simply and clearly: “we’ve got one environment and if we mess it up, then there is no going back.”

Check out this video to show you exactly what went on at this year’s Youth Eco Summit…
