Councils top of mind for new Gen Z startup Ripple

Councils that work to empower young people and foster their engagement in community and civic affairs are being invited to send two individuals to a virtual workshop series in June.

The series is aimed at providing young Australians with practical tools to help build their communities, and is being organised by Ripple, a new platform to drive youth employment and engagement.

Ripple co-founder Skye Riggs says “Councils play such a significant role in communities across Australia, so we want to work with them to engage young people in programs that bridge divides, build networks and help young people to discover not only their purpose, but their agency to shape the future for the better”.

Bernadette Meehan, the chief international officer at The Obama Foundations, Tim Costello, the former CEO of World Vision Australia, and Sarah Spiker, Global Projects manager at the Cotton On Foundation, are among an impressive lineup of speakers scheduled to appear at the three-part workshop series.
