Environmental warrior focuses on future

David SalvaireSound Telegraph

For Baldivis Secondary College student Jared Mosely, making a lasting difference in the lives of young people for generations to come is what Youth Week is all about.

Jared is an ambassador and board member for the Baldivis Children’s Forest, which is one of only two of its kind in Australia and is a multi-award-winning United Nations environmental site. He is also on a committee aiming to make Baldivis Secondary College carbon neutral through small changes and is on the Peel Sustainable Youth Council with an ambition to become an environmental engineer.

Since returning from Yosemite National Park in the US after being selected for the prestigious Alcoa scholarship, Jared said he wanted to continue his environmental work.

“Everything we do has an impact on the environment and I want to be a leader in making a difference for future generations,” he said.

“The work that young people have done already is amazing, so the more people that can get involved will only be a bonus.”
