The Youth Solutions Rural Swansea Project will provide a digital and face to face platform for young people to engage, promote and discuss Youth Environmental Advocacy and Activism, Green Technology, Waste Management, Climate Action, Climate Justice at a local RDP level, Swansea level and engage on a global level through the YMCA Youth Led Network across the world to engage in providing solutions for our current environmental emergency. The project aims to bring young people together and provide and promote increased levels of accessible opportunities in and around the rural wards. This will be done virtually during the re-opening of our communities due to lockdown, and will ease back into face to face work in the second half of year one (as COVID allows) and continuing with a blended programme of digital and face to face project work.
The funding will pay to provide a worker to support and facilitate the Youth Solutions Rural Swansea Group, identify and train champions and develop and work up 3 youth led projects over 18 months, and will reach over 250 young people during the course of its work.
