Action for Conservation: Our work building the next Generation of environmental leaders

Action for Conservation was founded five years ago with the aim of empowering young people from diverse backgrounds to become the next generation of environmental leaders. UK wildlife has suffered significant damage over the past 40 years, with over 40% of species now in decline. The environmental sector is also failing to reap the benefits of a diverse workforce; just 0.6% of the workforce identifies as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic. This has an impact on young people of colour and other minority groups, as it creates the misconception that the environmental movement is only for white middle-class people and makes them less likely to fight to protect nature when they’re older. 
Action for Conservation is working to support young people to engage with environmental issues and develop skills to take action for people & the planet.
