Earth Ambassadors

The environment stewardship and leadership program, which began in the 1990’s, provides Native American youth with training sessions and informational workshops to increase their knowledge of environmental issues affecting Indian country. Through the program, the ambassadors will learn effective methods to raise awareness and youth engagement of the issues affecting the environment quality on the Native lands and promote the efforts to address environmental concerns within the nation’s Native communities. Topics covered by previous cohorts have included recycling, conservation, regeneration, and restoration.
UNITY Earth Ambassadors will also have unique opportunities, coordinated through UNITY, to take their message to tribal and governmental agency representatives and lawmakers, and others committed to environmental stewardship.
