The Role of the Global Board

The Global Board is an essential part of Plant-for-the-Planet’s structure, comprising at least 8 young leaders representing the different regions of the UNEP Model. The primary goal of the Global Board is to inspire, drive, and amplify the voices of our community of Climate Justice Ambassadors. For one year, they work together to grow our global community and implement projects with an international impact.

Board members also represent Plant-for-the-Planet at various platforms and events through speeches, press conferences, public statements, and campaigns. In doing so, they raise awareness about the climate crisis and empower our global community of Climate Justice Ambassadors to inspire others through action.
