In Our Hands
The In Our Hands project involves the education of younger generations on the importance of educating yourself on marine conservation issues. The project aims to reach out to and inspire young people to become active in environmental conservation. The project sets out to encourage the importance of safeguarding the natural environment in the hope for a more sustainable future. The 2013 road trip around Australia will be conducted to to assist in getting the word out there to as many young people as possible. The best thing is that YOU can get involved in the project from wherever you are in the world!
The message is simple: Ocean ecosystems are being destroyed before our very eyes… it is in the hands of younger generations to reverse the mistakes of the past to give hope for a better future.
The project sees kids from all over the world making huge sheets with their handprints and a message beside each print to those in positions of power, asking for the protection of our oceans and wildlife- to safeguard the futures of the youth of the world. After collecting as many sheets as possible, I will personally deliver these sheets to the environmental decision-makers of today…
The sheets will be personally presented at international environmental conferences as well as large public events. More details will be announced as the project progresses.
The whole ‘In Our Hands’ journey will also be filmed over the duration and made into a documentary of the same title in order to further encourage, inspire and educate kids all over the world on marine conservation efforts and standing up and having your voice heard as a younger individual…
Champions for Change
Starting as an idea to get the ‘In Our Hands’ project out there to more of Australia’s youth, the Champions for Change initiative began in March 2013, for 6 months, and saw us travel to hundreds of schools and universities all over Australia’s coastline to help further the message of the In Our Hands Project. More on how this tour went still to come!
If you work at a school (or still go to school) this is one of the best and quickest ways to gain many handprints and educate a large amount of kids at once- if your school, university or local event is in Australia, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise myself to come and speak at your school during the 2013 education tour!
If you belong to a social club or organisation, sporting team, if you have a stall at a market etc- you can EASILY get involved by collecting handprints and sending them to me. EVERY handprint counts!
Any general questions or to find out where to send your sheet- please email me! Comments about the project can also be left below!
