We work with a team of young people aged between 18 and 25 called the UNESCO Aotearoa Youth Leaders.
Our UNESCO Aotearoa Youth Leaders serve as advisors, negotiating inclusive ways for young people to be engaged and empowered in the National Commission’s priority and programme areas.
As UNESCO ambassadors and change agents, the youth leaders work to build UNESCO’s profile and identify where they can drive, support and collaborate with organisations, networks and initiatives that align with UNESCO’s mandate.
Our UNESCO Aotearoa Youth Leaders work with us for two years. Every year we have new UNESCO Aotearoa Youth Leaders join our team. Our next round of UNESCO Aotearoa Youth Leaders applications will open in November 2023.
In the meantime, if you are interested in finding out about some of the current work our youth leaders are involved with join our Facebook or Instagram pages .
