Your Green Future

YGF Year 10 students at UWE

Your Green Future is an interactive event which engages school students with a low carbon economy, and their potential role in creating this through their career choices.

Each event sees hundreds of 12 to 18 year olds work with businesses in a series of creative workshops which investigate the changing face of business, from local sustainable business models to cutting edge technologies.

The project emerges from the background challenges of youth unemployment, skill shortages and, the need to develop low carbon, resilient communities. 

Overall, Your Green Future will support the local community becoming a sustainable, low carbon economic environment in which businesses flourish, communities thrive and individuals have the opportunity to reach their potential.
