I received this invitation and thought I would share it with you. All the details are below and I look forward to seeing you there!

YOUR INVITATION

Girls of Australia ... be part of the 1 Million Women campaign … daughters, mothers, sisters, grandmothers inspiring climate action. You are invited to join hundreds of students, teachers, parents and other guests for the launch of our youth program, 10,000 TEENS.

IT'S HAPPENING IN SYDNEY ON TUESDAY MARCH 29TH - SEE ALL THE DETAILS BELOW
Our daily lives are filled with opportunities to make change for a better world. 10,000 TEENS is all about giving girls the tools they need to make a difference for the planet ... at home, at school, everywhere!

Our goal is to empower 10,000 teenage girls (ages 12 to 18) to get involved with climate action by cutting 1 tonne of pollution out of their lifestyle in a year. It's easy. We will show you how.

We are inviting teachers, students and parents of all high schools in NSW to attend. You'll learn how to get involved with this program, how to cut pollution right now and how to be a leader of change.
