Ahmad Yazan Miri / Global Ambassador, Youth4Nature

Yazan is a 21 year old ambitious activist from Aleppo, Syria. After spending 11 years of his life in a war zone, he discovered the climate and nature crises are now risking his and his peers futures. Amidst the extreme challenges and barriers he faced, Yazan started the first-ever community composting program in Syria, inspired by nature-based solutions and traditional approaches to deal with nature and manage resources.

He is currently a volunteer with Voluntary Action Sheffield as a New Beginnings walk leader, taking groups of refugees and asylum seekers on trips to local landscapes.
