Young People Ambassadors

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 ambassadors in partnership with the Commissioner:

  • identify opportunities for engagement with young people
  • conduct forum and other activities 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 Commissioner to work with young people
  • provide linkages with key sustainability and environmental youth groups such as Powershift, the Youth Climate Coalition and ACT Otherwise.
