Funding for Youth-Led Projects that Improve Access to Natural Spaces – Deadline Reminder

21 October 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Linnean Society is offering grants of up to £1,000 for schools and community groups in the UK to increase youth engagement with nature and improve access to local natural spaces. The aim is to support projects that will affect change and empower young people and their surrounding communities to actively engage with natural spaces, whilst engendering a deeper appreciation and understanding of nature. Priority will be given to projects that are innovative and developed alongside or led by young people.

Individuals and organisations who are linked to a school or community group that works directly with young people aged 16 or under in the UK are welcome to apply. This includes school staff, student groups, home education groups, community groups, and small charities.

Eligible project ideas include but are not limited to:

  • Running a school festival about nature.
  • Painting community murals showcasing local biodiversity.
  • Building or restoring a community garden.
  • Creating a nature walk.
  • Hiring a speaker to come and talk about local foraging.

Funding can be used for:

  • Materials.
  • Room hires.
  • Speakers.
  • Trainers.
  • Freelancers.
  • Project-specific staff costs.
  • Audio-visual hire.
  • Reasonable volunteer expenses.
  • Transport.

Awardees will be selected by an online youth panel made up of 16–18-year-olds from across the UK. Successful proposals should aim to take place within 2022.

How To Apply

The deadline for applications is 1 November 2021.
