There are plenty of ways to get involved with Our Bright Future. Many of the projects operate at a local level, although some are available nationwide. Do get in touch with the team if you are interested in a specific project and we can put you in touch with the relevant project leader.
Environmental Careers Festival
From 19 to 26 April Belfast Hills Partnership is delivering an environmental careers festival for young people which aims to help those that want an environmental job. You will be able to hear from a panel of young career professionals who will be able to advise on what they found useful in starting their careers and will also give hints on what they look for in prospective employees. This workshop will include a live Q&A so that young people can have their questions answered.

Youth Dream Green
Youth Green Dream are a group of young people sharing their dreams, knowledge and voice to make a greener future. Could you be their newest member?
Supported by Our Bright Future and the National Lottery Community Fund, the young people of Youth Dream Green are designing an event, with and for other young people, all about the kind of post-lockdown world they want to live in.
If you’re passionate about the environment, this will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and gain valuable experience planning a national event on the issues which you feel are most important.
You don’t need to be an expert, just bring your passion! Apply to join the group by completing this form.
Join The Wildlife Trusts’ #WilderFuture campaign
The natural world is in a critical condition. Let’s put it into recovery. There are various laws to protect nature (although they have not always been effective) but there aren’t laws to support putting nature back.
A Nature Recovery Network set in law will map the places where wildlife currently thrives and highlight the spaces where more habitat could be created, to connect these in a network that extends across landscapes, joining with others to form a national network through which wildlife can be restored.
Tell your politicians to write the next chapter for wildlife here.
