The first step to behavior change is education. As a Panda Ambassador, you’ll explain to others how environmental issues can affect their lives, why they should care, and what they can do to help. Panda Ambassadors give presentations, host and attend events, and have one-on-one chats with community leaders. As an ambassador for WWF in your community, you will demonstrate the local relevance of global issues like climate change, wildlife crime, and food scarcity. You’ll also help people understand how their individual actions, behavior, and purchases have a global impact.
Creating a better world doesn’t have to be a chore. Panda Ambassadors inspire people to care about the planet by having fun and connecting on a deeper level. It’s your creativity, new ideas, and enthusiasm that will make the most difference. Some ambassadors engage the public through works of art, creative and persuasive writing, hosting athletic activities like yoga or running, or even hosting parties with music and dancing. You are encouraged to leverage your talents and interests, whatever they may be, to attract others and get them involved.
Panda Ambassadors are the on-the-ground leaders of a new environmental movement, responsible for drumming up the local support that allows WWF to achieve big wins. You’ll lead your community’s participation in international WWF initiatives like Earth Hour and climate marches. You’ll coordinate support for changes in policy, laws, and business practices. You’ll stand up for your community—be it a college campus or an entire city—and lead it toward a more sustainable, Earth-friendly future.
