Young Persons Ambassador is appointed by Rail Forum Midlands

Rail Forum Midlands (RFM) has confirmed the appointment of its new Young Persons Ambassador.

Harry Burr, CEO of Sustainable Transport Midlands will undertake the role.

Elaine Clark, CEO of RFM said; ”Following Harry’s recent interview at our Annual Conference it was obvious that he is a force of nature! We had lots of positive feedback from members and we were keen to explore how we could build on a relationship which all started with an exchange of emails a year ago. I am delighted that Harry will be our Young Persons Ambassador providing a valuable insight from, and for, the next generation. We are very mindful that his studies come first so his role will be limited to just a small handful of meetings or events a year.”


Harry said;  “I’m proud to have been appointed Young Persons Ambassador with RFM. Not only will it do great things for Rail Forum Midlands and their Future Talent Advisory Group, and general relations with younger users of the railway, but the relationship will also support Sustainable Transport Midlands and it’s connections with the rail industry going forward, as well as its ongoing effort to build a team of volunteers, and no doubt support my personal career development. I’m really looking forward to working with RFM in the future!”

The role of the Young Persons Ambassador includes input into RFM’s Future Talent Advisory Group – which focuses on schools and education engagement with the objective of attracting more diverse young people to the industry. Harry will also attend some meetings and events each year to update RFM and its members on his wider campaigning activities and to discuss sustainability in public transport.
