HUMIFORM Activate Groups empower young people to become active citizens and change makers. Through youth led projects and nature connection activities, young people will develop the skills to make a difference in their community.
Research has found that 95% of Australian youth believe climate change is a serious problem, with 4 in 5 experiencing climate anxiety. The recent bushfire disaster has left many feeling vulnerable and overwhelmed. Activate Groups provide young people with opportunities to be a part of the solutions to the challenges we face, giving them hope that a better world is possible.
The group will run every week during the term for an hour after school in the St Kilda area. Venue, days & times TBD based on expression of interest.
Cost: $165/term, sibling discounts are available
We are calling for expressions of interest. Please fill out this form if you are interested in your child/children attending an Activate group. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
About the facilitator:
Megan O’Malley is the founder of HUMIFORM. She is passionate about connecting young people to their impact and inspiring them to take action in their communities. In 2014, she started a lunchtime nature club at a local primary school for a group of Grade 1 students. By the time they reached Grade 6, this same group of students had grown into empowered young activists who understood their power to make a difference.
Megan has vast and varied experience in the social and environmental impact space. In 2016, as part of a project called Walk Sew Good, she walked 3500km across Southeast Asia to learn from and share the stories of people creating fashion in positive ways. In 2019 she was selected to attend Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Conference in Brisbane, participated in the Oxfam 100km Trailwalker fundraising event, won Moral Fairground’s Early Ethical Enterprise Pitch Competition, volunteered for the Prader Willi Syndrome Association, participated in and facilitated a Shift Australia activism group, planted trees at Planet Ark’s Tree Day celebrations and a whole lot more. In her spare time Megan also writes for Ethical Made Easy and Eco Warrior Princess.
