Young People in Conservation – in celebration of International Youth Day
Today, environmental issues attract more youth activism than perhaps any other topic. Youth activism is incredibly important in raising awareness and setting agendas, as Greta Thunberg has shown. On #YouthDay, this piece from Emily Seccombe of A Focus on Nature & UK Youth for Nature highlights some of the fantastic nature-based projects and organisations that are youth-led or youth-focussed. If you’re a young person wanting to get involved, please do check these organisations out. If you already work in the conservation sector and want to support young people to give them a greater agency in the sector, perhaps get in touch with some of the organisations below to see how to work together to build a more ambitious, inclusive sector.
