Good to be Green
Why the environment matters to young people and how it can help you
The National Council for Voluntary Youth Services (NCVYS), in partnership with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and members of the NCVYS Environment Community have produced the Environment Charter to help voluntary and community organisations consider ways of working that will help young people make the most of the natural environment.
Read the Environment Charter and learn more about:
• Why understanding their environment helps young people thrive
• How to author your own environmental policy
• The great resources there are for getting young people interested in green issues
