Banksia Gardens Community Services is creating a two-part program called Climate Adaptation Requires Youth Action (C.A.R.Y.A.) in Broadmeadows, Australia. First, participants go through a training program to learn about climate change and adaptation practices. Second, participants help their community adapt to climate change. We created the C.A.R.Y.A. framework to give Banksia a strong program foundation in empowering youth (ages 18-29). Using community input, we created an instructor manual that sets up and details the training program. We established and documented a network of local organizations to support C.A.R.Y.A. and its participants. Anyone interested in training youth in climate change adaptation can reference and adapt the C.A.R.Y.A. program framework to help their community.
