What is Young Placechangers?

The Young Placechangers programme from greenspace scotland empowers young people to take the lead in changing places where they live. Working with youth groups, scouts, a creative media charity, a school and wider community groups. The Young Placechangers programme combines greenspace scotland’s experience of working with community groups on placemaking with Youth Scotland ’s experience of youth work and supporting young people to take the lead. We have funding from The Scottish Government, the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Gannochy Trust to support the programme until June 2020.
Young people are not the “citizens of the future”, they are citizens here and now and have a lot to offer when it comes to developing our local places.
