Will you Stand for Nature with us?

Stand for Nature Wales is a youth climate change project with a big ambition!

The six Wildlife Trusts in Wales have come together to tackle climate change with the help of the young people (aged 9-24) of Wales. Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, for the next three years, we will work to empower and inspire young people to take action for nature and wildlife in their local area in a bid to tackle climate change.

WTSWW’s Living Seas team based at the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre in New Quay will be working with young people living in coastal Ceredigion to protect our seas, take climate action and to inspire others in the local community to make a difference.

As part of the Living Seas Youth Forum young people will –

• Discover more about the marine environment and climate change
• Discuss how we can take climate action and inspire others in coastal Ceredigion
• Take positive action for our seas and marine wildlife by developing and running campaigns and events both online and in the local area
• Connect to nature and the local marine environment
• Meet like-minded people and have fun!

We’ve also launched the project in East Glamorgan in partnership with Gwent Wildlife Trust. WTSWW will be working with young people in Cardiff to take climate action in the city and show urban communities how we can help the environment and create areas for people and wildlife. As part of the project you’ll:

• Discover more about the environment and climate change
• Discuss how we can take climate action and inspire others in Cardiff and Newport
• Design and create your own climate action projects, from campaigning to creating sustainable habitats.
• Through a Project Forum we’ll run regular meetings, training and workshops online via zoom and face to face meet ups and events (organised in line with COVID-19 restrictions and guidance).
