Your Move Student Conference 2019

Joanna Webster
Lake Gwelup Primary School

Last week, our ten Transport Troopers and Miss Webster attended a two day student conference, run by Your Move and Millennium Kids. Throughout the two days, we collaborated with 50 children from other City of Stirling schools and spoke to some real life experts, including the Mayor of Stirling, Mark Irwin.

Our mission was to unpack some of the problems surrounding transport in the local area and come up with innovative solutions to get our schools using active travel to get to school.

Check out the video below for a few highlights.

Some of the activities we completed included: Transperth info sessions, Millennium Kids workshops on how to pitch your ideas, calculating our own carbon footprints with Dr Vanessa Rauland (ClimateClever app designer), filming advertisements with the City of Stirling’s ad team, learning about what has worked in other schools and leadership activities.

Thank you so much to Your Move, Millennium Kids and the City of Stirling! We can not wait to complete our first Hands Up survey and start making a change in our community!
