There are plenty of ways to get involved with Our Bright Future. Many of the projects operate at a local level, although some are available nationwide. Do get in touch with the team if you are interested in a specific project and we can put you in touch with the relevant project leader.
Lancashire Wildlife Trust is recruiting for two new posts on the Our Bright Future funded Myplace project – A Youth Advocacy Officer and an Assistant Community Engagement Officer.
The two posts aim to further embed youth-led work across the Trust and create a long term sustainable future for the Youth Council. For more information and to apply, click here.
Youth Voice Summit – Rethinking Water
Working together with Our Bright Future and the Environment Agency to influence future water management, youth governance and engagement.
Join us on 16 March, 5.00pm-7.00pm, when Our Bright Future and the Environment Agency hold this very special online event just for young people. Speakers include:

  • Peta Foxall, Chair of The Wildlife Trusts
You will be introduced to the organisations’ work and have the opportunity to take part in a Q&A. During this interactive event, you will be invited to share your ideas and opinions on the best ways to manage water which will feed into and help shape approaches to future water management across the country.
You will also have the chance to discuss how the Environment Agency engages with young people, and ways in which its Board can progress youth engagement in developing its policies and activities. All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance. Sign up here.
Join The Wildlife Trusts’ #WilderFuture campaign
The natural world is in a critical condition. Let’s put it into recovery. There are various laws to protect nature (although they have not always been effective) but there aren’t laws to support putting nature back.
A Nature Recovery Network set in law will map the places where wildlife currently thrives and highlight the spaces where more habitat could be created, to connect these in a network that extends across landscapes, joining with others to form a national network through which wildlife can be restored.
