  • Are you aged between 12 and 24 years old?
  • Do you have access to the internet/zoom?
  • Are you keen to be part of an important voting process?
  • Do you live in the Bay of Plenty Region?
  • Are you passionate about education and the environment and can commit to approximately 5 hours of time?
  • Can you meet on voting day - 24 May 2024 (either in person at your closest Bay of Plenty Regional Council office or online – details to be decided)

There will be two meetings held via zoom before voting day to inform the process, provide guidance, collaborate as a panel member, and start to make decisions.
