Future generations are key to safeguarding nature for the future.

Attend and contribute to Trustee meetings
Act solely in SWT’s best interests
Help manage SWT’s resources responsibly
Comply with SWT’s governing document and the law (this will be explained in more detail in your induction process)
Act as the link with the youth forum and advise on realistic recommendations for their annual report to Trustees.
We’re looking for anyone aged 18- 26 years:
Who can bring a younger perspective to our Board of Trustees and contribute new ideas.
Who’s a great communicator
Who listens and acts fairly
Willing to understand and take on the duties and responsibilities of being a trustee.
