Our driving force
Legislation, including the Paris Climate Conference, UN Development Goals and the UK Industrial Strategy, commit the UK to tackling climate change.
We believe successful implementation of these strategies require engagement, and collaboration, with a broad coalition of stakeholders, including civil society and the private sector. We need to create on the ground action.
Young people are crucial to this; they are the next generation of employers, employees, policy makers and citizens, yet our research highlights that whilst sustainability, climate change, waste and energy, are all terms that our students are familiar with and recognise as important they do not understand their use in the wider world.
In response to this knowledge gap Your Green Future is designed to explore the global sustainability issues and, using a community approach, translates them into issues that are important to the student’s local area. In doing so, the programme strives to enthuse a new cohort of leaders who not only implement sustainable change now but also in the future.
We would like to deliver this sustainable education programme to as many students as possible. Interested? Then please do get involved.
