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.

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.

From community orchards to reduced carbon emissions, each individual project is creating positive change in local communities. One project is introducing more than 15 million bees into Lancashire. Another will see 245 tonnes of food diverted from waste and providing 6.2 million portions of fruit and vegetables to charities and community groups. There’s even a project offering the opportunity to compete for funding through a Dragon’s Den.

Hear from people on the ground in Our Bright Future projects.

This exciting and ambitious programme is address multiple issues and challenges faced by our 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 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.

Our projects cover the UK. See which ones are creating change near you.
