We believe that young people’s voices should be heard and valued, and that they should influence decision making and drive change. This is why we have recruited a team of 20 inspirational young people to be our NextGen rewilders.
NextGen rewilders are young volunteers, aged between 15 and 24, who support SCOTLAND: The Big Picture in promoting our vision of a vast network of rewilded land and water across Scotland, where wildlife flourishes and people thrive.
Our NextGen team are presently working on:
- Developing a rewilding Youth Advocacy Strategy, which will help us better connect with young people.
- Supporting the development of rewilding learning resources aimed at increasing other young people’s knowledge and understanding of how rewilding can drive positive ecological and social change.
- Participating in regular learning opportunities with experts from the field of rewilding.
