OUR
FUTURE
REG

Our Bright Future is a forward-thinking social movement that supports young people to lead progressive change in their communities and local environment. We are helping young people step up and take what is rightfully theirs: a healthy planet, a thriving economy, a brighter future.

Through a portfolio of 31 projects across the UK we are enabling young people to make genuine differences to their local environments. Each project has been scaled up or replicated from successful models to make certain we are having the most impact possible.

Our Bright Future is an exciting and ambitious programme designed to address multiple issues and challenges faced by a generation. We are creating a sustainable model for positive change and gathering strong evidence about the way we support the development of the environment and young people.

The programme is benefiting individuals and communities through improved built and natural environments across the UK. We’re also making work in the green economy more accessible.

The quality of our built and natural environments are benefiting from significant change. Our young people are developing knowledge, skills, confidence and resilience to increase their employability and wellbeing. As a result, our communities are gaining a wealth of benefits from improved local places.

But this programme goes a lot further than the impact seen by the individual projects. Collectively we are addressing multiple issues and challenges faced by our generation.

+ OUR IMPACT

The quality of our built and natural environments are benefiting from significant change. Our young people are developing knowledge, skills, confidence and resilience to increase their employability and wellbeing. As a result, our communities are gaining a wealth of benefits from improved local places.

But this programme goes a lot further than the impact seen by the individual projects. Collectively we are addressing multiple issues and challenges faced by our generation.

Through our community of smart and ambitious individuals, we are generating change across the UK.

Our 31 youth-led projects have each been given around £1 million of funding to tackle a range of environmental issues, whilst giving those involved the skills, experience and confidence to become the environmental leaders of tomorrow.

There comes a time when the next generation makes its move. For this generation, faced with the possibility of a future of climate and economic crisis, that time is now.
