Our Youth-Led Nature Restoration Project


On July 1st 2019, we launched the largest youth-led nature restoration project of its kind in an effort to reverse devastating ecological breakdown and create a global gold-standard for youth-led environmental action.


Taking place on an upland estate in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales, the pioneering "Penpont Project” is run by a Youth Leadership Group of twenty 12-17 year olds from diverse backgrounds. Working in partnership with tenant farmers, the landowners, conservationists and local stakeholders, they are restoring habitats and ecosystems and exploring innovative farming and forestry approaches to provide a healthy support system for people, biodiversity and agriculture. 

16 year old Deep, from London, who is one of the inaugural members of the Youth Leadership Group, says;


“An opportunity to transform a landscape doesn't come around often. We are thankful for the faith and trust given to us by the landowners and tenant farmers, and we look forward to learning from each other and working together to create change. More people need to care about our environment in the UK and beyond, and our hope is that this pioneering project will inspire others to follow in our footsteps and spark a chain reaction of similar projects. If we can do it, then why can’t you?"

If you are interested in supporting this project please get in touch.
