Yamini took up the opportunity to become a Young Trustee of YPTE to gain an insight into the role of education in raising environmental awareness of critical issues and the fundamental importance of our surroundings. She recognises the challenge of engaging young people in such issues and is interested in discovering inspiring ways to engage young people, at a local and relatable level, about global issues.
She will study Geography at university in the Autumn of 2016. She hopes that this learning experience will enable her to bring valuable contributions to YPTE. She believes that the role of a Young Trustee will open her eyes to the impactful role of environmental education in delivering sustainable and resilient alternatives for young people.
