Event description

Description

Environmental organisations oft lament the tale of the great unengaged youth, but there is more to this story than meets the eye. There is an untapped community of early career environmentalists, students and young wildlife enthusiasts out there, keen, talented and frustrated with being overlooked when it comes to opportunities to engage.

Is it time for us to clean our spectacles and take a fresh look at the way we encourage young environmentalists? Just as music, fashion and sport listen out for the voices of young people with an interest, how can the environmental community get behind those who are already shaping an environmentally passionate youth movement?

Join our panel of young environmentalists in a session curated by Bristol Nature Network – an 18-30’s wildlife group making waves in the city and beyond.

You will

  • Gain insight into the views of young environmentalists and wildlife enthusiasts

  • Explore ways that organisations can support youth engagement with environmental issues
