We live in a Climate and Environment Emergency. Now, more than ever, the voices of Young People concerned for the future of our world should be echoing around the halls of Westminster- pushing those in power to act with greater urgency to avoid a climate catastrophe.
The Climate and Environment Emergency is an International Emergency. It does not know borders or ethnicities. We need to build on our links with the Global Young Greens and the Federation of European Young Greens, and continue to form links with other emerging groups, to take on this International crisis.
We need to build a platform of Young Green Activists, who know exactly how to push for change where it is needed most. We need to harness the expertise of Environmental Activists around the world and learn from their experiences to make our own more effective. This is especially important now as the UK’s foreign policy becomes increasingly isolationist.
Brexit will have a devastating impact on our ability to fight the Climate and Environment Emergency. We need a strong, unified youth voice against Brexit and the possibility of a no- deal exit, with strong, evidenced policy that those in power can’t ignore.
My name is Nannette Youssef, and I am standing to be a Non- Portfolio Officer on the Young Green’s Executive Committee because I believe I can make these things happen. I am a City Councillor in Norwich, the youngest and only BAME member sitting on the Council, and have fought hard to ensure that young people’s voices are heard in Norwich. Before I was elected, I was an active Green Party Campaigner for 6 years, and President of the University of East Anglia’s Young Green Society.
I have professional experience working in Advocacy and Campaigns in a world renowned Environmental NGO, and academic experience in policy making and decisions as a Masters student in Public Policy at a world famous university.
Thank you for taking the time to read my statement, and I hope you will consider voting for me!
