Young people are the environmental leaders of tomorrow. Their time is coming and we can’t wait to see what happens next.
‘The environment is where we live. Our Bright Future is designed to unleash the ambition of young people across the UK to make a personal and collective contribution to making our environment brighter, happier and more resilient to threats like climate change and the waste of natural resources.’
– Peter Ainsworth, UK Chair of the Big Lottery Fund
‘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.’
– Stephanie Hilborne OBE, Chief Executive of the Wildlife Trusts
