“In the present circumstances, no one can afford to assume that someone else will solve their problems. Every individual has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes are not sufficient; we must become actively engaged.”
~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama
At a time when there are more young people than ever before, who will come of age during a time of unprecedented challenge and uncertainty, engaging with these youth as powerful and transformative agents of change is essential.
The purpose of the SERES Local Ambassador Program is to identify, train and support a cohort of facilitators and multipliers to inspire, mobilize and unleash youth leadership for community resilience to a changing climate.
Many of these youth are “unlikely leaders” without traditional access to wealth, privilege, power or resources. Nevertheless, their impact is significant: increasing youth engagement and activism for social change, strengthening community action plans, and inspiring their communities to change their habits to support healthier, more sustainable lifestyles.
