Our future hope for park management to include young people

Today is European Day of Parks with the theme ‘the next generation’ - therefore we find out about the work National Youth Agency is doing to engage more young people in park management.

The Future Proof Parks programme a partnership initiative between Groundwork, the National Youth Agency and Fields in Trust, and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund set out to engage young people in their local parks by connecting them to local Friends of Parks groups. Young people are influential in the future management of parks and local greenspaces to ensure that they survive.
