Yes, it official – our Kids love trees and as part of #1000actionsfortheplanet they developed Green Lab so to all our tree buddies and collaborators we are so excited to announce that Millennium Kids has been successful in receiving a State National Resource Management NRM Community Stewardship Grant for Green Lab.
“Green Lab project enables young people to address concerns for their future through revegetation and long-term protection of natural areas. Our survey of over 500 young people identified climate change, and the loss of tree canopy as major environmental problems facing future generations. This is a youth led STEAM initiative, planned, undertaken and monitored by schools, community groups and LGA’s. Through it, young people will realise their vision for a connected canopy across Perth that creates a cooler climate, while providing habitat for native flora and fauna, and green spaces for people.”
The grant is for $308, 804. This will help us work with our partners and friends to support young people in their vision for a cooler, greener city.
We visited Coolbinia Primary School with Simon Millman, local MP, students and teachers to celebrate the first official Green Lab Biome – Coolbinia Primary School Bushland.
We’ll be keeping you updated regularly with Green Lab stories over the next three years!
