About the Role
The AYCC is currently looking for one outstanding individual to join the team and lead the AYCC New South Wales branch for 2018, alongside our current two State Leaders. This is an incredible opportunity to build AYCC New South Wales to powerfully implement strategic grassroots campaigns at a crucial time for the climate. This is an opportunity to use your existing leadership, communication and strong interpersonal skills to make a significant and lasting contribution to the climate movement. In this position you will build skills in management, communications, community organising, strategy, campaigning and much more. This is your chance to be part of a dynamic and exciting leadership team that is building a generation-wide movement to solve the climate crisis.
ABOUT THE AYCC
The Australian Youth Climate Coalition has grown from a handful of people in 2006 to over 120,000 members and hundreds of volunteers around the country. We have successfully campaigned to get a price on carbon, held Power Shifts with thousands of participants, and convinced all four of Australia’s big four banks to pull out of involvement with the proposed Adani Carmichael coal mine on the Great Barrier Reef. We’ve reached hundreds of thousands of young people with our message demanding a safe climate future and are building a generation wide movement to solve the climate crisis before it’s too late. We do this work alongside the Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network. In 2018 our main focus
will be ensuring that the Adani coal mine in Queensland does not go ahead.
