Seeds need to be planted in the earth in order to sprout, grow and produce more seeds representing our strong connection to country as well as a cycle that has been going on for tens of thousands of years. We’re building this movement for our country, for our people and for our culture.
Many Indigenous communities around the world are facing the loss of sacred country, culture and rights to make decisions that affect this land.
We also know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have looked after the land sustainably in the past, which gives us hope that we can do it again. As elders of the future, it is so important that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people stand up for climate justice and have access to mentoring and supported leadership opportunities to do so.
Over half the population of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are under 25. Increasingly young people are leading the way in many areas of social change for our communities and as Seed, we are committed to ensuring that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people are supported to lead the movement for climate justice and ensure our voice is heard on issues that affect our future.
