What does the Youth Panel do?

Representing young people across the country on important environmental and social issues, GAP's Youth Panel will help shape GAP's new mission to tackle our throwaway culture and demand more action and progress towards a truly circular economy.  

If you want to spend your time working with like-minded people who care about the planet and want to come together to change things for the better, then tell us a little bit about yourself and register your interest in becoming a member of the Youth Panel here.

As a Youth Panel member you will need to:

  • Bring your ideas and enthusiasm to Youth Panel meetings once every few months
  • Be prepared to engage with and question the practices of businesses and campaign for change where needed
  • Be a voice for and represent young people across the country on key sustainability issues
  • Shout about the Youth Panel on your social channels and discuss with your friends and family
  • Work with Global Action Plan's staff and board members to shape the future direction of the organisation and deliver against our mission to tackle excessive material consumption.

What's in it for you:

  • Valuable experience for your CV
  • An opportunity to meet with other like-minded young people to create and lead campaigns that achieve real change for good 
  • Development of your negotiation, leadership and campaigning skills
  • A chance for you to have a say on important environmental and social matters and to help shape the future direction of Global Action Plan
