We’re proud to have launched the Green Youth Board!


This group of 7-25 year olds will work together to challenge housing associations to make their green spaces better for nature. The Green Youth Board will also decide which community groups can win money to supercharge their nature-boosting missions. That could be for a new vegetable garden, setting up nature trails, or anything else. 


The Green Youth Board is made up of young people from housing associations across the UK as well as members of the Eco Emeralds, the environmental pioneers of Backyard Nature.

Our housing association partners include Catalyst Housing, Clarion Housing Group, Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, Hyde Housing Association, LiveWest, Phoenix Community Housing, Places for People, Sovereign Housing Association and Swan Housing Association. We are grateful to the #iwill fund for their match funding.
