Would you like to help create a brighter, greener future in Northern Ireland? We’re inviting young people to take on the Grassroots Challenge and help lead local environmental projects, which will benefit your community.

Up until December 2020, Ulster Wildlife’s ‘Grassroots Challenge’ project will bring the great outdoors to life for 5,000 young people, aged 11-24, through Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Special Schools across Northern Ireland.

A range of partner organisations is involved in helping to deliver the project, including Keep NI Beautiful, Northern Ireland Environment Link and Lantra.
This exciting youth empowerment project is one of 31 which make up ‘Our Bright Future’, a UK-wide programme run by a consortium of organisations led by the Wildlife Trusts.
