Meet the 2020 Cultures Advisory Council!

By Cultures Of Dignity | February 26, 2020

We are thrilled to introduce the 2020 Cultures Advisory Council!


The Cultures Advisory Council is a select group of 18-24 year-olds from across the globe that help advise, think about and help spread our work. The Cultures Advisory Council serves as boots on the ground in different communities, thinking and working on issues that impact young adults’ lives – from social media and technology, identity, gender, social dynamics to politics.

The Cultures Advisory Council is a space to discuss issues that matter to young adults around the world and learn from each other.
