24 year old Rebecca had been travelling and doing poorly paid creative work for small sustainability charities, prior to coming to the Environmental Leadership Programme. She felt that she didn’t have professional skills and wasn’t where she wanted to be in life. Once she joined the programme she was given great opportunities to network and improve her knowledge of environmentalism. She particularly enjoyed the campaign training and being able to get her own ideas off the ground. Being on a course with other like-minded individuals gave her a real boost, and she now counts many of her course colleagues amongst her closest friends. She is now writing a business plan for her environmental enterprise and applying for long term jobs.
Yesterday, Leela, Claudia, Zoe and Sion from #OurBrightFuture projects at @friends_earth and @UpRising_UK headed to meet the @MarkDrakeford, Welsh First Minster. Check out the coverage on BBC Wales from 21.37-25.02.
