2016 is a pretty momentous year. Australians will be going to the polls, the Global Goals for sustainable development kick into gear and Adele is going on a world tour (fingers crossed she comes to Australia).

With so much at stake, it’s important to stop and listen to the young people affected. So this National Youth Week, four of UNICEF Australia’s Young Ambassadors are taking over our Twitter account to talk about their greatest passions, from citizenship to climate change.


Who is taking over @UNICEFAustralia?

Meet Hussein from Perth at 12:00pm on Tuesday 12th April

Hussein, 17, is a first year law and international aid and development student. He is a West Australian, born and raised, an older brother to twin sisters and a lover of the morning coffee. As someone who will turn eighteen only after the federal elections this year, Hussein is particularly passionate about youth citizenship and democracy.
Meet Isabella from Melbourne at 5:30pm on Tuesday 12th April

Isabella, 17, is a Year 11 student with a passion for the environment and for children’s rights. She is particularly concerned about the impact of climate change on our planet, now and into the future. She spends her spare time trying to get her cat to love her as much as she loves him.
