Before the business of the AGM, at 7 pm, a young Christian involved in organising the Student Strikes for Climate, Grace Vegesana, will address the meeting. Grace Vegesana is the Western Sydney Organiser for the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, an instigator of the Not Business as Usual Alliance, and an Environmental and Climate Science and Law student at Macquarie University.
Grace will talk about how her faith inspires her work in organising students for the Strikes, how they now plan to mobilise students in this difficult time of battling COVID-19 and why it’s important that people of faith swing behind them as energetically as possible.
Documents for consideration at the AGM:
AGM 2020 Agenda – this includes a proposed resolution to be voted on at the AGM. The wording of the resolution has been carefully crafted by the Committee, so time will not be spent at the AGM reconsidering that side of it.
AGM 2019 Minutes
The year that was
Where this year we have been thrown a few terrible curve balls, 2019 was an exciting year for ARRCC. Supporters worked tirelessly over 2019, and the work is also made possible by those who donate so generously. As you can see in the Annual Report, our highly skilled staff and dedicated volunteers variously worked to ensure that we hold a successful national conference, to build strong local groups, support the Student Strikes in large numbers and generally speak out publicly, consistently and peacefully. ARRCC will continue to create opportunities for learning and action even during the coming months where the world struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic, but now might be a good time to pause and celebrate a huge year of faith-based climate action!
