The Green Futures project, managed by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, will bring environmental opportunities for up to 4,000 young people, aged between 11 and 24 and living in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas. Green Futures is part of Our Bright Future, and is one of 31 youth-led projects across the UK each receiving funding to give young people the skills and knowledge to improve their local environments. The aim is to ensure this generation’s voice is heard in the current debates around environmental improvements and a resource-efficient economy.
