The BFFP Youth Ambassador Program is a platform where youth leaders from all around the world come together to represent their generation’s stance on plastic pollution.
This year, we are joined by 26 young leaders who are involved in various zero waste campaigns and plastic-free projects with their own local organizations in 17 countries. The BFFP Youth ambassador program helps create capacity for young people to lead change in their local communities and international spaces, and support them in contributing to bigger upstream solutions to end plastic pollution for good. These ambassadors go through training, mentorships, and facilitated discussions where they coalesce to determine the BFFP Youth Network’s strategic priorities, calendar, and mobilization plans.
Our Youth Ambassadors this year are from Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria, the Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, United Kingdom, USA, and Panama.
Celebrating power in diversity, these young leaders are committed to learn from each other while also elevating their united position towards what it actually takes to solve the plastic pollution problem. They are guided by the Break Free From Plastic Youth Manifesto, that contains the demands, commitments, and strategized action of the BFFP Youth Network within and outside the movement, drafted during the BFFP Youth Summit 2022.
