The Species on the Edge Youth Panel will bring together 14 young people between the ages of 16 & 25 from across the Species on the Edge project areas to discuss issues relating to the natural environment and their communities. Panellists will meet at least four times a year online, and will have the opportunity to join a fully funded spring residential.
Through this experience, panel members will: meet new people and learn from experts within the conservation sector; develop their skills, confidence and employability; receive training; and be supported in developing their own project to encourage others to connect with nature.
