    Fyn

    Fremantle Council has responded to calls from the Fremantle Youth Network for urgent action to address climate change. Members of the Network wrote to Mayor Brad Pettitt and Fremantle councillors to raise their concerns about the lack of action on climate change and urge the council to be their voice to highlight the issue.

    At its meeting on Wednesday 22 May 2019 the council accepted the Network’s letter and responded by declaring the world was in a state of climate emergency that required urgent action by all levels of government, including by local councils.

    The Youth Network’s letter to the council said climate change was the issue that had dominated their recent meetings. “We ask that the Fremantle Council supports the voices of young people who cannot vote in the upcoming federal election who want action on climate change. Will you be our voice to highlight this issue?”

  • May 2019 - Meeting Update & Mission Australia Survey

    30 days ago

    What's important to you? The Mission Australia youth survey is now open for 15-19 year olds. The City of Fremantle code is 85504 and you can find the survey here: www.missionaustralia.com.au/what-we-do/research-impact-policy-advocacy/youth-survey

    Our first guest speaker at our meeting was the Senior Projects Officer Community Engagement who explained the roles and powers of local government, council meetings and the role of My Say Freo. FYN will soon be using My Say Freo to communicate and share updates.

    The main focus for the meeting then diverged to the most important issue that the group would like to focus on which currently is climate change.
