Meet the guys and gals at Hitler Climate Youth. You won’t find a posher, whiter or more earnest bunch of kids anywhere west of Point Piper. Check out the size of that smile on the guy in the white shirt at the back.
Their objectives are straight from K Rudd’s Little Red Book
1. Build Capacity
(No, not generating capacity that would actually keep people warm in winter) but ‘support for member organisations’ capacity to carry out their own youth climate initiatives’.
2. Inspire: Build the youth climate movement
In just one short paragraph they have managed to find room for the words outreach, communication, training, diverse (x2), cultures, engagement (4 times), empowerment (x3), mobilization.
3. Educate and Empower
AYCC will educate, facilitate, educate, empower, enable and mobilize.
4. Mobilise: Ensure youth climate organisers are included in decision-making
‘AYCC will ensure governments and business hear, and act on, young climate organisers’ voices at local, national and international decision-making on climate policy.’ Now they are really starting to sound like Hitler Youth.
5. Maintain a democratic, effective and inclusive coalition
Key Orwellian bingo words in this short paragraph – strive (x2), democratic, functional, coalition, engages (x3), delivers, commitments, mission, youth (x3) empowering (x2), effective, advocates.
6. Inform on adults who use the garden hose on Tuesdays or who leave a light on when they go out for dinner
ok – i made that bit up – but i bet it’s in next year’s agenda
Where do kids so young learn these empty words?
Their bios are here – it gets creepier and creepier.
