Who we are

YPTE is a charity that encourages young people’s understanding of the environment. It aims to give young people (and an increasing number of adults) clear and balanced information on a wide range of environmental issues, including climate change, plastic pollution, deforestation and endangered species.  This enables them to make informed decisions about how to live their lives in a way that gives greater priority to the preservation of the natural world.


The role

The Young People’s Trust for the Environment (YPTE) is a UK-based charity delivering environmental education and initiatives to inspire young people. Since the 1980’s we have provided clear and balanced information to help younger generations understand and make informed decisions on environmental matters.

We are currently searching for a Trustee to help develop our board of Young Trustees. YPTE’s Young Trustees are non-voting members of the charity, aged 16 to 25 who act as advisors to the Director and Board of Trustees and assist with the development of content for our social media channels.

The new Trustee should be an individual who has experience of working with young people of this age group, a team player, who is positive about the change we can make and most importantly cares about the environment and our mission. If this sounds like you, please get in touch to find out more. Contact Peter Littlewood via info@ypte.org.uk.

As a trustee there is a formal requirement to attend board meetings four times a year; most of these will be online, lasting no more than two hours. One in-person meeting per year will take place in central London. However, it is hoped that you will also be able to make some level of hands-on contribution to the work of the charity.

Trustees will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. YPTE is committed to diversity and inclusion, welcoming applications regardless of sex, gender, race, age, sexuality, belief or disability.

Trustee positions are not remunerated, but agreed expenses can be reclaimed.
