Our Ambassadors

Jaime Askew

“If we can change the mindset of everyday people then enough people with enough passion can create widespread change in the world.”

Studying Environmental Science at the University of Wollongong I am working on tackling waste at home and in the broader community.

As part of the waste management team at Flametree Community Food Coop at Thirroul I am researching and developing new ways to make the business as waste free as possible.

We are currently living a one use, disposable life, and because of our wealth, countries such as Australia should be the first to do something about this. If we can change the mindset of everyday people then enough people with enough passion can create widespread change in the world.

I am excited to be part of the Young Sustainability Ambassadors Program to learn, develop skills, and meet like-minded people and to share my passion for waste reduction in the most productive way possible.
