Project name: My World My Home
Lead organisation: Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland
Project partners: National Union of Students
My World My Home will develop the next generation of environmental leaders, by enabling and training them to work together confidently to lead a larger contingent of people and deliver real, lasting environmental and community improvements on climate change and/or biodiversity loss.
Building on the success of Friends of the Earth’s Campaign Organisers Programme and the expertise in student engagement offered by the NUS, course participants will work towards an accredited Certificate in Community Campaigning. They will be supported by a package of face to face training sessions, 1:1s, and online resources as they build connections with others to design, deliver and evaluate a social change project locally.
The participants will be selected from FE and VI-from colleges in London, Nottinghamshire, Cardiff and Bristol.
