Duration: April 2025


Green Pioneers helps 14-17 year-olds develop their ideas for community green space projects that challenge local attitudes towards the environment.

What we’re doing

As a Green Pioneer, young people learn through both online and in person sessions about environmental issues and how to run their own projects.

At the end they’ll gain an AQA certification to get them started on their greening journey.

Green Pioneers is open to young people aged 14-17 based in Manchester.

The sessions include habitat restoration, wellbeing walks, composting and more.
