EUROPARC Youth Manifesto Project
Helping to shape the future of wild places across Europe
Europarc Conference, Aviemore, 17th – 21st September
After months of hard work and travelling, the EUROPARC Youth Manifesto was finally launched at the EUROPARC Conference in the Cairngorms National Park on Friday 21st September 2018.
The call to action was put out by the 50+ young people who brought the manifesto to fruition asking for organisations and communities to engage with their young people to create new opportunities for living, learning and working in rural communities and protected areas.
In response to this call for action the Cairngorms National Park Authority board has agreed a project to develop a youth group in the Cairngorms to take forward some of the recommendations of the EUROPARC Youth Manifesto. This is the Cairngorms National Park Youth Project.
We are looking to recruit young people aged 16-30 to be part of a steering group that will co-design a Cairngorms National Park Youth Group:
- To be the voice of young people in the Park.
- To develop a procedure to fund young people’s ideas about living, learning and working in the Park.
- To put on exciting and innovative events for young people in the Park.
And much, much more!
We will continue to work with our Finnish friends from Rieska LEADER, Keskipiste LEADER and Ravakka LEADER through 2 exciting workshops –
- 6-10 April 2019 in Keskipiste LEADER Finland.
- 25-28 May 2019 Glenmore Scotland.
- Also one planning meeting / event per month from March to June 2019.
