This is the first year of the FSC Youth Council and we are welcoming applications from potential new Youth Councilors!  

If you are excited by the idea of being a part of the new and engaging Youth Council for one of the UK’s leading environmental education charities, then apply now!  

We are looking for young people from across the UK who want to make a difference in environmental education and connect young people with the outdoors. You will be supported with training and course opportunities to help with your own career, personal, or academic environmental aspirations.   

If you are aged 16-251 and can attend regular virtual meetings2 and travel to an FSC location3 once a year than we would love to hear from you.  

Diversity and inclusion are extremely important to the FSC. We encourage applications from young people currently underrepresented in the environmental sector. This includes those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, those with disabilities and LGBT+ young people. 

What will I be doing on the FSC Youth Council?

Why should I join the FSC Youth Council? 

The Council ensures all young people have the option to increase their environmental knowledge, connect more with nature and explore environmental career paths and volunteering opportunities through the FSC.  

There are limited spaces, so please use the quick and easy application form to highlight why you would like to join and what you hope to gain, which will help with our selection process.
