Project Description

 Dev Sharma

Age 14, England – East Midlands

Everything I do aims to raise the profile of young people and ensure our voices are heard.

As a Young Food Ambassador, I spoke in the House of Lords about the struggles that many young people experience due to food insecurity. Then I went back to Westminster to help launch the Children’s Future Food Inquiry – the first report to hear from young people directly.

Meanwhile, here in my home city of Leicester, I’ve worked on the Young People’s Council, the #LifeNotKnives Campaign and the Reclaim Radical project, as well as organising FridaysForFuture climate strikes.

I’ve unlocked my inner advocate and I’m determined to help other young people do the same!
