We are developing an unstoppable force of young, engaged, empowered and skilled citizens who believe in Our Bright Future.
Our Bright Future is a forward-thinking social movement that supports young people to lead progressive change in their communities and local environment. Through a portfolio of 31 projects across the UK, we are helping young people step up and take what is rightfully theirs: a healthy planet, a thriving economy, a brighter future.
The quality of our built and natural environments are benefiting from significant change. As a result, our communities are gaining a wealth of benefits from improved local places and our people are benefiting from developing knowledge and confidence that will help them into further education and employment.
However, the benefits of these projects reach much further than the immediate visible local impact. Collectively we are gathering strong evidence about the way we support the development of the environment and young people. We are confident that this evidence will soon start to guide economic choices made at local, regional, and national levels in the UK.
Every generation has what it takes to create real positive change. It is simply a matter of whether people have the confidence and support to do so. This programme is about just that - fuelling the creativity, inspiration and resilience of our young people. And in the face of escalating environmental challenges it has never been more important.
