- Our Bright Future will empower up to 100,000 young people from across the UK to act as catalysts for delivering long term change for the environment by 2021.
- With over thirty million pounds from the National Lottery Community Fund we will support more than 30 projects run by organisations across the environment and youth sectors. We will enable these organisations to share learning and best practice. We will collect evidence of the impact young people are having on their communities and the environment, and we will use this evidence to inform decision making about how we collectively invest in our young people and the environment.
- Each funded project will support young people to lead and deliver environmental action and campaigning projects; set up and create their own sustainable enterprises or provide vocational training and jobs within the green economy.
- All young people involved will be supported to develop skills, knowledge, confidence and resilience to help them into employment or further education; become environmental leaders within their local communities and contribute to the emerging green economy.
