Climate and disasters affect young people

and they deserve to have their voices heard.


Australians unite after a disaster. What if we unite before the next one?

To make every community resilient before disaster strikes we need a national conversation that includes everyone. Children and young people deserve to be part of that conversation.

 

The Our World Our Say report found Young people want action on climate and disasters. Most young people already live with disasters and believe climate change is making them worse. Our leaders must listen.

 

Sign the petition to call on federal, state and local politicians to listen to the voices of young people and implement the findings of the Our World Our Say report.

By signing the petition  I'm calling on Australia's leaders to listen to young people and take action on climate and disasters.  Please email me opportunities to raise my voice and take similar actions with World Vision.

Our World Our Say report

Australia's largest youth climate and disaster report reveals the way children and young people are already being affected by disasters in Australia, how they're already responding to climate change, and what they want to see from politicians and schools.

Our Climate & Disaster work

 

It doesn't matter who you are - when disaster strikes, everyone deserves safety and support. Australians know what disaster feels like - we've lived through it in the overwhelming tragedy of the 2020 Bushfire Crisis that has impacted millions at home.

The climate crisis threatens all of us. From our own floods, droughts and fires at home to rising sea levels, longer hungry seasons and extreme weather around the world.

Join our campaign for a safe climate and see million of trees cultivated by farmers are changing lives and securing a sustainable future for vulnerable communities.

WORLD VISION'S CHILD RIGHTS POLICIES


Children and their rights

Children are entitled to special care and assistance and also entitled to exercise their right to participate in matters affecting them.

Most vulnerable children
We focus our work on reaching and supporting children who live in catastrophic situations and relationships characterised by violence, abuse, neglect, exploitation, exclusion and discrimination.

We seek improved learning outcomes, particularly for the most vulnerable children, through high-quality and inclusive education at all stages of the life cycle.

Maternal and newborn child health
We affirm that all people, including women and children, should be well nourished, protected from infection and disease, and have access to essential health services, regardless of where they live.

Young people
We recognise the importance of supporting and working with young people to ensure their voice, ideas and actions have a platform and can contribute to positive change and to building peaceful societies.
