Ashwin Sridhar


My name is Ashwin and I am a Y13 student who plans on studying engineering at university. From technology law to migration rights, I have a wide range of interdisciplinary interests.

One of my main hobbies is rock climbing (bouldering). On a recent climbing trip to Stanage Edge (Peak District), I re-discovered the beauty of nature and the importance of policy in preserving ecosystems. As such I take a keen interest in green policy and strongly believe that everyone, as both citizens and consumers, has the power to influence legislation and shift industrial behaviour for a greener tomorrow.

Coming from a non-traditional STEM background, I hope to make politics more accessible to young people from different backgrounds. Through advocacy and education, I hope to get more of the youth involved in the decision-making process. I look forward to joining the YPDG and seeing where it takes me in the future.

Quote: “The YPDG provides a unique opportunity to delve into the world of policymaking and work with like-minded individuals to influence future legislation. As a member, I hope to get more young people from different backgrounds involved in the decision making process through education and advocacy.”
