|Report from 2015 Annual NSW Youth Environment Team Forum|
The 6th Annual Youth Environment Team Forum (YET) was held at Camp Coutts over the weekend of 27-29 November, 2015.
Representatives from five Regions, including South Metropolitan, South Coast & Tablelands, The Golden West, North Coast, and Greater Western Sydney, attended the Forum. Corey Belan was re-elected as Chair and Brandon Thompson as Secretary for the ensuing year.
The key matters for discussion over the weekend were changes to the "Environment Charter" where the YET Forum Group put together a submission which SC Environment, Bill Pickering has forwarded onto National for their consideration.
The main topic was pre-planning for the State Environment Activity Camp (SEAC) in September 2016, which will be held at the commencement of the September School Holidays at Camp Coutts. On the Sunday the team environmental activity, led by Ann Stafford, managed to remove and destroy around 90% of the thistles that had taken over much of the car park area. This was a fitting end to a very successful weekend of teamwork.
