Ahri Tallon, 21, founder of the Northern Rivers Youth Environmental Society and co-coordinator of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition in NSW says:

This course is amazing! As a young person who left University to pursue activism this was a perfect program that combined the academic rigour of University with the practical and relevant knowledge and skills needed to be an effective activist. I am now employed in the campaign to stop coal export expansion in Nth Qld and am so grateful to have had such a great opportunity to prepare me. The deep and well explained content, the balance of learning styles that are catered for and the idyllic setting make this program an essential for any up and coming radical.
