Futurechangers is an exciting new cohort programme running for the first time during 2021/2022 in London. The aim of the programme is to increase the diversity of environmental activism.
Ten young people who might not otherwise consider a career in campaigning, but are more likely to be impacted by the effects of climate change, will be introduced to the subject of car dependency and the costs felt by people, the city and the environment.
The cohort will receive training in six sessions over six months. They will be guided in creating their own campaigns, culminating in a paid work placement at an environmental charity in October.
The programme ends with a celebration of the work done and a certificate of completion.
Futurechangers is run by the Transport Good Community Interest Company and supported by the Evidence to Exist Research Group.
Initial funding has been generously provided by the Foundation for Integrated Transport.
