Strengthening the link between Climate change and health activists from the Caribbean and those around the World

The HEY 2022
Ambassador Program

The 2022 HEY Ambassador Program brings together leading climate change activists for a 9-month Intergenerational program with the support of UNICEF and other partners. The program strengthens action for climate change and its impact on health, while creating a deeper connection and relationship between the HEY Community and its members through its practical advocacy efforts.

The Ambassador program provides the opportunity to take our advocacies to new heights, strengthening engagement at the community level, all while accelerating our collective work for climate justice in our respective countries while simultaneously strengthening our skills to become community leaders.

To become a HEY Ambassador you must be between the ages of 10 – 27 years of age. Our HEY Regional Focal Points must be between the age of 16 – 27 years of age.

Our HEY Ambassadors are individuals who have a passion for changing the world through climate action and have a strong will to engage and grow the HEY Campaign Community.

What do Ambassadors do?

Engage in Regional Collaborations

We create local engagement in communities in every corner of the world to promote impact and action in climate and health. With the support of our HEY Regional Focal Points, we ensure our network of young activists are always connected and involved in climate and health action.

Facilitate Action for the Climate Justice and Health

Within the HEY Ambassador Program, our partners facilitate connections and opportunities in our community for our Ambassadors to promote action within their countries and respective regions through our practical climate and health action programmes.

Develop as an Advocate

We will be hosting workshops and providing toolkits for the entire Ambassador community, connecting Ambassadors with one another and harnessing skills that are required to influence change globally.

Networking Opportunities

We create a network that identifies programs that accelerate the growth of our HEY Ambassadors.

Grow the HEY Campaign Network

Our HEY Ambassadors are representatives, promoting the HEY Campaign values and programs within their local and global networks. Their responsibility is to help us spread the word about our programs and getting more young persons interested in climate and health action.

Ambassador Roles

Our HEY Ambassador program 2022 is open to include refugees, asylum seekers and persons with disabilities and other minority and indigenous groupings.
