Futurechangers is an exciting new cohort programme that ran for the first time during 2022 in London. The aim of the programme is to increase the diversity of environmental activism.
Young people who might not otherwise consider a career in campaigning, but are more likely to be impacted by the effects of climate change, are introduced to the subject of car dependency and the costs felt by people, the city and the environment.
The cohort receives training over multiple sessions. They are guided in creating sustainable transport campaigns, culminating in a paid work placement at an environmental charity.
Futurechangers is run by the Transport Good Community Interest Company with delivery supported by the Evidence to Exist Research Group.
Initial funding has been generously provided by the Foundation for Integrated Transport.
Our project partners include the Ark Putney Academy, Brunel University London and the Charlotte Project.
