Seattle Audubon established the NextGen Advisory Council in the fall of 2018, to elevate the perspectives and expertise of young professionals and student activists in our work for birds and nature in the city. As a 100-year-old organization, Seattle Audubon has a rich history of conservation achievements, but our programs have not been sufficiently informed by or served diverse audiences. This is not the Seattle Audubon of the future. The strategic plan that will guide our work over the next three years includes an increased commitment to intentional collaboration with communities that have been excluded or sidelined by the mainstream environmental movements of the past. The NextGen Advisory Council is one part of these efforts.
The council is currently recruiting new members, seeking to fill a maximum of 11 seats. The council meets regularly, currently online.
