A local graduate who specialises in international relations and European political and legal frameworks has been selected as the next Youth Delegate at the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.
Tammy Randall has worked in Brussels, Washington and Warsaw, and has represented Gibraltar at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in 2018.
She says she’s thrilled to have been appointed and hopes to bring a younger perspective to decision-making which she feels is often lacking. Over the next year, Tammy will form part of UNECE Working Group on youth, drafting proposals for the Strategy for 2030.
She will work closely with the Commissioner for Sustainable Development Professor Daniella Tilbury, who is the UK government focal point at UNECE on matters relating to the environment and education.
The Minister for Environment and Sustainability John Cortes said that given her training in diplomacy and experience in international relations, Tammy is well placed to take on the role.
