Froglife’s Green Pathways scheme encourages young people to take part in positive activities linked to conservation and the environment in their local community. This innovative project is based in Peterborough and is supported by BBC Children in Need. Due to its outstanding success, the project also expanded to Scotland and Sussex.
The idea behind the projects is to use the outdoors to help young people manage difficulties in their lives whilst improving green spaces for wildlife and people. We work on young people’s confidence, social skills and behaviour and at the same time improve their knowledge of the environment, enjoyment of the outdoors and transferable conservation skills. Throughout the years, Green Pathways has been supported mainly by Children in Need, but also with the help of smaller, local grants.
