Would you like to become an official Youth Ambassador for the Planet? It’s easy!
Ask your parents to send us some of the great things you are doing for the planet. What are some of your favorite “green” tips? What is something you have done in your home, school, or community? Feel free to send us photos or videos that we can share with other young people to help inspire them to make a difference too. Be sure to send us your first name, age, and the city you live in and ask your parents to complete the photo release if you are sending photos or video.
Your parents can send these to email@example.com or to

If we want to save the environment today, we talk to the adults – but if we want to protect it for the future, we must have our worlds youth on board taking action. The investments of America and all nations in our young people cannot be understated. We hope to empower young people to be ambassadors for the planet and take the lead in eco-ideas now and in the future. With our support, these youth ambassadors – like you – will change the world.
