Event description

Description

Are you aged between 18-30?

Do you have an idea of a way to make your community more environmentally friendly?

Are you resident in Great Britain or Northern Ireland?

Could you gather yourself and friends to bring about positive change in your local area?


If so, then you have come to the right place!


Go Green for your Community aims at bringing together young people who are passionate about the environment and supporting their local community. We hope to provide learning, time and space for you to find out more about how to apply for funding to carry out a project in your local community.


This 2 day activity will allow you to discover:

  • How to develop your environmental project and apply for funding

  • A chance to network and meet other young people who are also looking to submit a community project

  • Personal development and learning through your project

Please ensure you have considered an idea of a potential community project you and your friends would be looking to carry out, before applying to attend. We will require you to briefly outline your project idea during registration.

Places, accommodation, travel and food are funded but limited so register your interest in a place today!
