World first, National Sustainable Development Goals Plan for Australia

Was it only the East or the Scottish with a great history of invention?
Turns out, there’s also quite a few DownUnder. Aussie’s invented the Box Kite, the Winged Keel, the recent Ocean pollution collector and even CleanUp the World days that all share a common thread.
Creative Aussie’s showing the world how things can be done better and often with many benefits for people right around the Planet. Well, you may now consider whether we should be able to add another name to this impressive list with the “Young Australians’ Plan for the Planet”.
It has already grown into several incarnations and the first pilot by over 240 students from High Schools from right across Australia, has just released their Plan, a big Plan, covering ALL 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
All beautifully considered and prioritised, this plan was presented in its Sample form to Federal Ministers at Australia’s Parliament House on 11th August, 2017 as the first part of the launch for National Science Week.
The Plan has a considered history of development including great institutions like Questacon and Australian National University (ANU) plus a host of other key stakeholders that have given this project the opportunity for the students to give it real Life. But not wanting to overemphasise the value of this Plan or the concept of where this could grow, we should seek your input, appraisal and review, so…
This is your Invitation to be a judge to review the groundbreaking work of the Young Australians’ Plan for the Planet Program, with their World first, National Sustainable Development Goals Plan for Australia.
Your assessment of the plan https://www.dropbox.com/s/qisienhwpdzhx0k/YAPP_NatSDGp23feb18©final1.0.pdf?dl=0 is pivotal to increase awareness that innovative global solutions are growing and are worthy of your good support.
Your thoughts and comments on possible corporate or other supporters will be as valued, as your awareness and encouragement for the process to grow and expand. Indeed, after exceeding all expectations in the Australian pilot program year, this week sees the launch of the International Pilot in Mauritius as the Young Persons’ Plan for the Planet Program.
Your review, discussion and support is likely to take this Aussie initiative much further and you’re welcome to include initial implementation ideas for the plan, through your network and in your locale.

Looking forward to your response and your support is also very welcome here https://chuffed.org/project/help-young-persons-plan-for-the-planet-go-global


Yes, this article is released on CleanUp Australia Day on 4th March, 2018 and though the above program has No direct connection with this group, the synergy of the ideas are very much part of the global growth towards sustainability around the Planet. https://www.planfortheplanet.org.au/
