It is our ambition to enhance the Environmental Academy and further our participants’ development through an expanded programme of design workshops and activity. The expanded programme will challenge participants to respond to the outcomes of the community engagement exhibition: a crucial aspect of iterative design which is responsive to the views and feelings of communities.
We are currently looking for match funding to enable us to deliver this extended programme.
Your support will also provide our participants with additional time and support from PLACED, their mentors and Ambassadors, alongside enriched resources. This will ensure all participants have greater opportunity to thrive.
By supporting the Academy, you can help us to make a difference. See our 19-20 Impact page to find out more about the impact our Academy programme has had.
Engaging with young people through the Digital Academy was a really innovative and different way to hear the voices of the future. It was interactive and thought-provoking, with plenty of opportunities to understand how the challenges and opportunities that they identified in terms of their own built environment and places could shape the way they lived.
Time and time again it brought to focus that our young people passionately care for the environment that they live in and the health of themselves and their families.
