As a dad to two brilliant kids, I know young minds are an amazing source of innovative and powerful ideas. As the Greens MP for Maiwar, I want to support those ideas however I can.
My office and I are looking for Mai-warriors - young, passionate people who want to improve their local community.
If you have a project you want to get started in your school or local community that supports environmental sustainability or social justice, I want to hear from you. The Mai-warriors program can provide grants to school-aged students of up to and including $500. My staff can also assist with administration, promotion and printing to help make your idea a reality.
Some of the projects the grants contributed to in 2018 included:
- Recycling bins installed at Rainworth State School
- Materials for the ‘Nude Foods’ club at Fig Tree Pocket State School, which encourages kids and their families to reduce plastic waste
- Installing a Buddy Chair at Toowong State School, which provides a safe and quiet place for students to escape the hustle and bustle of the playground when they need to.
- A soft plastics recycling program throughout Milton State School
- Contribution to install solar panels at Ironside State School
- Soil and sleepers for the Rainworth Community Garden
- Purchasing reusable straws for the Fig Tree Pocket tuckshop
- Funding to make Rainworth School Fete waste friendly and more sustainable
