THE future leaders of tomorrow made a deputation to today’s current community leaders at Tuesday night’s Mandurah council meeting.
Junior mayor Lilijana Nicholls and junior deputy mayor Hallie Zwerus presented their views on the junior council’s Clean City, Cool City project.
The project is aimed at encouraging the city’s youth to learn more about the effects of littering and pollution, in the bid to create a cleaner Mandurah.
It will be incorporated into the Mandurah Children’s Festival on October 25, if approved by council.
There they would have a variety of activities, such as games, that promote a clean city.
Lillijana said she believed litter had a negative impact on Mandurah’s reputation and people, in particular youth, may not understand the effects which littering had.
Councillor Caroline Knight congratulated the junior councillors for the work they had put into their project.
“I think the junior councillors have hit on something that strikes a cord with me and many across the community,” she said.
“It is time we act.”
A final decision will be made at the June 23 full council meeting.
