The Renewable Cities Young Ambassadors Program is an exciting new initiative to connect young professionals and emerging leaders in the renewable energy sector. The aim is to promote leadership and innovation led by young people. The Program launched in 2016 at the Renewable Cities Forum to create a network to share knowledge, skills and ideas to deliver projects in our local communities.

The Young Ambassadors Program invites young professionals and students aged 18-35 years to participate. We seek motivated, engaged, dynamic and creative individuals from government, business, research and the community sector working in renewable energy. If you already play a leadership role, or want to be a leader, we’d love to hear from you.

Participation will require attendance at the Renewable Cities Forum on 14-15 June 2017 and engaging in the Young Ambassadors plenary. This session will involve the formation of a network and developing the vision for the types of initiatives we would like to run. It is expected that you are committed to contributing to the network and being an Ambassador in your workplace or community.

“Australia is transitioning to a cleaner economy. Our population is growing and becoming increasingly urban. Our cities and towns need to be at the forefront of building a cleaner economy. Young people can, and must, be leaders and innovators to take our economy and society forward.”
Jacqui Fetchet, Renewable Cities Young Ambassadors Program Leader
