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.
Young Trustees in the Environmental Sector
Young people who are interested in becoming trustees in the environmental sector are invited to an online session hosted by Our Bright Future and the Young Trustees Movement. Four young trustees will speak about their experiences, share good practice and dispel some of the myths around becoming a trustee. The session will start at 6.30pm on Tuesday, 19 October and there will be a chance to ask questions. Sign up here.

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.
