Would you like to become an official Youth Ambassador for the Planet? It's easy!

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 world's 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.
