Generation Green

Generation Green

Generation Green is a 16-month funded project that aims to provide over 100,000 opportunities to connect young people to nature, create and save jobs, and build an aspirant workforce for a green recovery.

Funded activities available through the project include day visits and overnight experiences in National Parks and Areas of Natural Beauty, social action and citizen science projects, self-guided learning and micro-volunteering.

Funding is specifically aimed at young people in England in the North West, Midlands and deprived coastal and urban areas.

Outward Bound are part of a coalition with YHA (England & Wales), Girlguiding, Scouts, Field Studies Council and the 10 English National Parks to provide these amazing opportunities.

Partnership update from our CEO

"It's been great to work collaboratively on this project to deliver experiences to connect more young people with nature, and develop a more representative workforce for the green recovery. Our work with partners to develop more young leaders from a variety of ethnic backgrounds continues in 2022 and we look forward to having more female instructors from the Women's Outdoor Leadership Course join our team at Outward Bound."
