Student Ambassadors

Sign up to become a Nature Positive Ambassador


Sign ups for the 2023/2024 Nature Positive Ambassador programme are now closed. Please check back in Autumn 2024.

We invite students from universities, colleges and higher education institutions to join our international network to link up with students around the world wanting to make changes for nature on their campus and at their institutions and start a Nature Positive journey with us. Alternatively there are many ways to work directly with your institution to take action for nature.

We can provide an activities toolkit and we would love you to share your actions for nature on social media with the #GenerationRestoration. You can also join our friendly Slack channel and monthly drop-in workshops to get inspired and support each other.
