Action for Conservation (AFC) started as a group of conservationists who felt the sector was stale and lacking diversity. Their solution: visit secondary schools, talk with students about what they do and encourage involvement in local groups. AFC is building the next generation of nature conservationists by inspiring and empowering every young person to protect the natural world.
Areas of Intervention
- School Workshops. AFC trains conservation professionals to lead participatory workshops in schools around the UK. 50% of students on their WildED programme are in receipt of pupil premium.
- Residential Camps. AFC runs free conservation camps for young people to connect with nature and learn how to protect it. This includes the pioneering Penpont Project in the Brecon Beacons where young people work in partnership with farmers, landowners and conservationists to restore ecosystems and explore innovative approaches to farming and forestry.
- Online Workshops. WildWEB is a new digital programme to support young people to take action for the environment whilst in-person workshops are not possible.
