Trust pledges to support 20,000 young Scots to connect with wildness
Trust backs Scottish #iwill4nature campaign to ensure young people are empowered to take action for our planet in 2020
The John Muir Trust has pledged to inspire 20,000 young people across Scotland during 2020 to get involved in social action by connecting with, enjoying and caring for wild places through its John Muir Award as part of the recently launched #iwill4nature campaign.
Launched in November 2019, #iwill4nature is set to increase opportunities for young people to act on behalf of our natural environment, and encourage commitment from organisations to embed youth social action into their work and long-term strategies. The Trust has supported the #iwill UK campaign since 2013 that makes volunteering and social action a part of everyday life for young people aged 10-20.
Toby Clark, John Muir Award Scotland Manager at the John Muir Trust says, “We want to continue to showcase the positive impacts young people are having on their communities, our wild places and the planet by supporting thousands to continue to get involved in the John Muir Award and other engagement activities we will run across Scotland this year.”
