Project dates: 2021-2022
Generation Green is an ambitious project which will support 100,000 young people and teachers/youth leaders to better understand the environment and green economy.
Through a series of day and residential activities, teacher and youth leader training, apprenticeships and work placements the partners delivering this project will reach out to young people in England in the North West and Midlands, and deprived coastal and urban areas.
Generation Green is actively delivering opportunities for an 18 month period thanks to government funding (Defra) administered through Heritage Lottery. FSC is working alongside YHA, Outward Bound Trust, Girl Guides, Scouts and National Parks to provide these amazing opportunities.
Subsidised opportunities for schools
FSC are heavily subsidising a range of products for schools, suitable for secondary students aged 14+ who are based within the identified target areas of England. The opportunities will enable students to access resources or outdoor science-based education, in ecology or geography field studies, to learn more about the natural world.
Subsidised opportunities for young people
FSC are offering free and heavily subsidised products for young people aged 16-25 living in England. Register for the chance to receive free wildlife ID guides and choose from over 70 natural history courses – including online, day courses and residential courses – available for young people aged 18-25.
This project is funded by the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England and the Environment Agency.
