We are proud to announce the launch of the Backyard Nature Green Youth Board. This is a growing group of young people across the UK coming together to challenge the housing associations where they live to take action to do more for nature, the environment and green spaces. The Green Youth Board will also be responsible for deciding which nature boosting missions grants can go toward.
This is the latest part of the Backyard Nature campaign, delivered by Semble, which works to ensure all children have the opportunity to protect nature where they live, improving individual and community eco-anxiety and wellbeing.
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.
