We know young people are concerned about the environment and want to be able to make a meaningful impact on the future for themselves and their families.
YG work with groups of young people from deprived areas, helping them to lead on environmental social action projects. Our environmental programmes aim to help young people create deep, lasting and meaningful connections with the natural environment while learning and building project management skills. They are youth-led which aims to harness the enthusiasm and energy of young people and encourage them to use the power of peer-to-peer education and engagement to make a real difference to the environment.
Our programmes aim to help young people contribute to their local community through environmental action whilst supporting young people who are interested in working in the environmental sector, to build upon their knowledge, skills and network for their chosen career. This can include practical conservation management on reserve sites, citizen science or apprenticeships and related courses.
We work in partnership with schools, colleges, universities and community groups to deliver our environmental programmes. If you would like to find out more then please get in touch.
Young people ages over 16 years can volunteer to be a part of the project and help each day with the collection, analysis and reporting our findings to the Global Ambassador Program. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a world wide project, with only around 15 seabins located in the UK this is a unique and special way to help make a difference to our environment.
