Manchester Climate Change Youth Board - Member Vacancy

Are you passionate about helping Manchester becoming a leading city for action on climate change? Can you help to engage and inspire new audiences to get involved? Do you have experience in implementing positive change? If the answer is yes, then now is your chance to grab a seat around the table in Manchester’s pioneering efforts to become a zero carbon, sustainable, livable city.

The Manchester Climate Change Youth Board (MCCYB) was established in November 2017 to capture the voices of young persons who live, work and study in the city. We feed back to the Manchester Climate Change Partnership, who together with The Manchester Climate Change Agency successfully secured the city’s commitment to take urgent action to become a zero carbon city by 2038, at the very latest!

In the past year, our Youth Board representatives have appointed the city's first Youth Champion for Climate Action, have created a manifesto and are now planning a launch to put young people's priorities at the heart of what Manchester is doing on climate action.

This unique Board is offering you the chance to get involved with such exciting opportunities, so come and join us on the front-line of climate action! Being part of the Climate Change Youth Board will build on the foundations that our members have created, as we look to boost our momentum and move to bigger and better projects.

MCCYB is committed to promoting equal opportunities, greater diversity and gender representation in the membership of Public Boards. Accordingly, we would welcome applications from sections of the community that are often under-represented in public life.

Board membership is not paid but certain expenses are met.
