2023 Youth Ambassador Asia‐Pacific Programme Application Page

UNITAR graduation with Danny Harington and Sean Lai

Please read these simple terms & conditions and then complete the application form.

  1. ITS Education Asia, partnered with UNITAR, shall provide the Youth Ambassador Asia-Pacific Programme (the “Programme”) to be taught online. The Course shall be taught to students aged 14-17 who will not finish their schooling before November 2024.
  2. The course will occur on 10 consecutive Saturdays beginning 23rd September 2023 and ending 25th November 2023. Weeks 1-9 the session will run at 10am to 1pm Hong Kong time. Week 10 is graduation day and will run from 1pm to 5pm HKT.
  3. Applicants will clear their diaries for the 10 Saturdays and prioritize attendance. Failure to attend more than 2 sessions will mean failing to graduate.
  4. Applicants are advised wherever possible to use a proper sized tablet, laptop or desktop with a good stable internet connection in a quiet and private location for the Saturday sessions. Applicants without great digital resources are welcome to apply and should let us know their circumstances so we can see what support might be available.
  5. Applicants should understand that the graduation requirement is based on delivering a 7 minute pitch of their ideas to deal with a sustainability issue. The graduation day event will take place in Hong Kong and depending on location the course attendee's pitch might be delivered online or in- person. There is no expectation to fly to Hong Kong from overseas (which would be against the spirit of sustainability).
  6. Applicants should understand that there will be in-course deadlines to submit work and in-course requirements to attend smaller group or individual mentoring sessions. Failure to make deadlines or attend mentoring sessions will mean failing to graduate.
  7. This is an Asia-Pacific course and all attendees must be residing in an Asia-Pacific country for the full duration of the course.
  8. All applications must be supported by a referee who must not be related to the applicant and who must be able to reference the applicant's experiences and abilities with regard to: attendance, diligence, research ability, and knowledge of sustainability. They will also be aware of any and all social/community work & activities the applicant is involved in. The referee will usually be a school teacher but applicants not attending traditional schools may still apply and find a different appropriate referee.
  9. Referees must be willing to be contacted for a follow-up of the reference and should be prepared to attend the graduation day either in person, if they reside in Hong Kong, or online from other locations.

    (i) The cost of the Programme is USD900 per attendee, priced on a not-for-profit cost recovery basis.
