Help shape the future of wild places across Europe
Young people are the future of Protected Areas in Europe; you are the decision-makers of tomorrow.

the Cairngorms National Park Authority will lead on a project to develop a Youth Manifesto that will outline ways in which protected areas, environmental organisations and rural communities can meaningfully engage young people in their activities to safeguard the future stewardship of our natural heritage and to retain young people living, learning and working in the rural environment and communities.
In line with the Year of Young People 2018 co-design principles the project is open to 30 young people aged 16-25 from across Europe who have been involved in community, protected area, youth or nature programmes. You will come together to share knowledge and co-design the manifesto. We are looking to recruit young people from a wide range of backgrounds, based within the Cairngorms area.
The project will run for two years and involve the following elements:
