Action for Conservation is a UK charity using pioneering approaches to inspire and empower young people from diverse backgrounds, between the ages of 12 and 18, to become the next generation of nature conservationists.
To us, being a ‘conservationist’ doesn’t just mean following a career as a field biologist or a campaigner. We believe that a passion for conservation can flow through anyone’s life, whatever their day-job. We want to inspire today’s young people to a long-term belief in the wonder of the natural world and empower and support them in taking action in their communities. Through our programme of school workshops, residential camps and our mentoring programme we bring the magic of nature into young people’s lives and aim to develop a youth movement committed to conservation and the earth. At all times, we strive to uphold our core organisational values: Wonder, Hope, Action and Change.
ConservationNOW represents a unique opportunity for us as a charity to build relationships and share best practice with organisations that share these values and are working to build an inclusive, freethinking and optimistic conservation movement. More importantly, we hope that in joining this network we can enable young people to make their voices heard and shape this movement long into the future.
