Young Trustees in the Environmental Sector

Tuesday 19 October 2021 - 19/10/21

Online

About this event

The average age of a UK trustee is 59 years old while less than 0.5% of current trustees are aged 18–24 . Despite this, when surveyed 85% of under 35s said they would consider becoming a trustee.

Kate Roberts has launched a campaign to raise awareness of how this is a particular problem for the environmental sector, with a clear solution.

‘Diversity of perspectives is integral to tackling sustainability as a board. Young people have been leading the agenda when it comes to the climate crisis and sustainability. Ensuring young people have a voice in all aspects of your organisation, including at trustee level, creates a space for the issue of sustainability to be raised and questioned.’

We need the following people to be part of creating this much needed change:

  • Staff and trustees of Environmental charities, to make their boards accessible
  • Aspiring young trustees who are passionate about sustainability
  • Current young trustees on environmental boards, to share their stories

This is why Our Bright Future, the Wildlife Trust and the Young Trustees Movement have teamed up to bring you this 1 hour webinar.

The speakers:

Jeanna Malhi is a trustee at Friends of the Earth. She was the charity’s first youth board member and is keen to share her experience with others wanting to become a young trustee. Jeanna has been a climate justice organiser for the past ten years and is currently a systems change organiser at UK Youth Climate Coalition as well as supporting people to effectively engage their councillors on climate change at Hopefor the Future.

Jack White is a trustee at Groundwork UK. He recently graduated from Newcastle University with a history and politics degree and is now studying for his graduate diploma in law. Before becoming a trustee at Groundwork, Jack was a member of the of their Youth Advisory Board. He is passionate about green spaces and getting young people more involved in their local communities.

Nina Vinther is a trustee at Earthworks St Albans and is also part of their YTM Sustainability Group. She is a languages graduate and aspiring classical singer. Nina has a longstanding interest in charity and volunteering, now increasingly from a strategic, future–proofing and climate–change perspective.

Elliott Lancaster is a trustee at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and this year won of the Support Staffordshire’s Trustee of the Year Award. His work focusses on the areas of sustainability, youth empowerment and peace building. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the Association for Project Management.

Join us on October 19th, 6:30–7:30PM to hear first hand from young trustees in the environmental sector, have your questions answered and find out how you can be part of meaningful change.
