You do not want to miss out on hearing from Tim Silverwood on environmental issues and the need to take action NOW!
We are pleased to offer this workshop to all young people interested in environmental issues and advocacy. This workshop is an exciting chance to up-skill yourself by sitting under Tim’s expert knowledge and get passionate about how you can make a difference in this world:
In his words, “It’s increasingly evident that the world cannot sustain the indiscriminate abuse of resources and subsequent pollution of our biosphere. It’s not a time to procrastinate or hope someone else is going to fix it…it’s time to do something. YOU are the person you’ve been waiting for.”*
Tim Silverwood is at the forefront of a global movement of environmental advocacy and activism. After studying sustainability and working in the non-for-profit sector for several years, in 2009 Tim co-founded the organisation ‘Take 3 – A Clean Beach Initiative’ that asks everyone to simply take 3 pieces of rubbish with them when they leave the beach, waterway or…anywhere. Tim also co-founded Circular Economy Australia who work with businesses, the government and education sector to find genuine solutions to current unsustainable operations; is the Director of ReChusable, which is an enterprise that seeks to provide sustainable alternatives to disposable products. He is passionate about inspiring positive change through his educational seminars and has facilitated over 200 of these to schools, universities, businesses, community groups and government departments since 2011.
