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.
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.

What we're doing
Since our project launch on April 22nd, the Stand for Nature Wales team has 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.
We are taking part in the Great Big Green Week, are you?
The Great Big Green Week is the UK’s biggest call for action on climate change, and will take place from 18 to 26 September 2021.
Together we will show decision makers that people from all walks of life are stepping up to take action on climate change - and we need them to step up too.
