The six Wildlife Trusts in Wales have come together to tackle climate change with the help of the young people of Wales. For the next three years, we will work to empower and inspire young people to take action for nature and wildlife in their local area in a bid to tackle climate change. From urban Cardiff to rural Radnorshire, young people are standing for nature and their futures.
Project made possible by The National Lottery players through the Community Fund - Climate Action Fund. This project runs from October 2020 until September 2023.
What’s the project about?
There has never been a more important time to take action for nature. We are currently facing a climate and nature emergency, with 17% of species in Wales at risk of extinction. But we can change this. By putting nature into recovery, we can and will tackle climate change. Thriving habitats can safely lock up vast amounts of carbon, while providing other vital benefits that help us adapt, such as flood prevention, clean water and improved health and wellbeing.
Community and School engagement
Since our project launch on April 22nd, the Stand for Nature Wales team have been busy, busy, busy! We have been working hard to reach out to young people.
We have already formed partnerships with some brilliant schools and community groups throughout Radnorshire, and we are excited to connect those students with nature using wildlife-based activities.
If you would like your school or community group to benefit from this exciting project please contact our Radnorshire Stand for Nature Wales team at
This project is aimed at individuals aged 9-24 across Wales. We believe that young people should be at the forefront of the movement to tackle climate change. We need your voice, your ideas, and your commitment to stand for nature. If you would like to be part of the Radnorshire Youth Forum, please fill in the registration form listed below:
