SIXTEEN-year-old climate crisis activist Makaela Rowe-Fox runs a free discussion panel on “How do we save the world?” at the Art Gallery of WA today (Saturday August 3).
Ms Rowe-Fox is one of the organisers behind the national school strike for climate movement, and has protested, marched and chanted at the March 15 and May 3 strikes this year.
She’ll be leading the panel, offering a perspective on climate change from the next generation who will cop the brunt of it.
Other panel members are Chelsea Andrews from Australian Youth Climate Council and environmental scientist Rachel Rainey.
It’s at the AGWA Theatrette from 2-3pm, and there’s a also kindred exhibition in the gallery The Botanical: Beauty and Peril, running until November 4.
It draws from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection and features pieces celebrating the beauty of landscape and plants, the environmental destruction they face, and Aboriginal land rights.
