The Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment, Dr Maxine Cooper, is inviting expressions of interest for Young People Ambassadors.

The Young People Ambassadors assist the Commissioner and staff on advocacy and awareness of sustainability and environmental issues, particularly in the youth sector (12-25 years).  The functions of the Ambassadors in partnership with our Office are to:

  • identify opportunities for engagement with young people,
  • provide advice on the update of the website and electronic communication,
  • provide linkages with the Children & Young People Commissioner by partnering with this Commission to work with young people, and
  • provide linkages with key sustainability and environmental youth groups such as the Australian Youth Climate Coalition and ACT Otherwise.

Young people who would like to express their interest should read the Roles and Responsibilities (pdf, 68Kb) for Young People Ambassadors.

Expressions of interest should be lodged by close of business on Friday 12 March 2010. Please note that the previously published lodgement date has changed.

Please send your submission to:
The Office of the Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment 
PO Box 356 Dickson ACT 2602
