Go Green For Groundwork!

Every year Groundwork supports thousands of young people to take action on climate change for the planet.

By empowering young people through programmes like Green Leaders and New to Nature, confidence is boosted to take action in local communities, reduce anxiety and inspire others. In 2024 we want to reach even more young people and we need your help to do it.

That’s why we’re asking you to Go Green for Groundwork this June to help us raise as much as possible to support young people by taking on a personal or group sponsorship challenge that will make a positive difference for the planet.
