AYCC, the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, is an environmental advocacy group famous in Australia for it's laser focus on youth. All AYCC staff and volunteers are under 30. In this episode Mark sits down with one of AYCC's organizers, Nick Carter, who is working to expand the organization to Northern Queensland, home to both the Great Barrier Reef, world-class institute of reef study James Cook University, and the headquarters of the Adani mine corporation, behind Australia's most objectionable new coal mine. They discuss activism, how youth activism differs, the dynamics of working for a volunteer-driven organization, and much more.
