SSB is delighted to welcome two young people as Young Adult Ambassadors. Izabel and Eleanor have already been out and about visiting SSB’s projects. Here are their thoughts on taking up the volunteer YAA role:

 

I’m Eleanor and I joined SSB as a Young Adult Ambassador because being part of a community that is seeking to create a more sustainable way of living is really important to me. I am proud of where I live and I want to ensure future generations can also be proud of their homes and green spaces. I also would really like to see green measures such as electric vehicles and solar panels become more affordable and accessible to a wider range of people. I hope to be able to bring knowledge from my current Environmental studies to support the work of SSB and I hope to use my experience with SSB to contextualise my environmental studies. I am very much looking forward to supporting SSB’s wide-ranging projects.

 

I’m Izabel. As a Young Adult Ambassador for Sustainable South Brent, I intend to help inspire sustainability, through education and engagement, for all generations. I hope that through our shared efforts we continue to make a difference and enjoy ourselves in the process. I have recently completed my degree in Biology with a focus in conservation and climate change and am hoping to progress into conservation research.

Our YAAs are already working on a social media campaign to support our projects. This should help to attract more young people to engage more widely with SSB projects, for the benefit of all.

If you’re aged between 16 and 21 and the volunteer role of being a Young Adult Ambassador appeals to you, we’d love to hear from you. Please apply using the online form, or for more information contact the YAA Liaison Trustee, Hayden Gabriel by emailing yaa@ssb.org.uk
