Young Scot - Future Routes Fund
Scottish Natural Heritage, ReRoute and Young Scot are excited to open the The Future Routes Fund. The fund is open to groups and individuals aged 11 – 26 from across Scotland who have an idea which would help young people to connect with nature and make a positive impact on the natural environment in Scotland.
The purpose of the fund is to help young people to connect with nature and make a positive impact on Scotland’s natural environment and landscapes. If young people can turn their ideas into a reality with this fund, hopefully even more young people will be aware of Scotland’s nature and will be inspired to enjoy and protect it!
What can you get funding for?
Your ideas could be anything that connects young people to Scotland’s nature, from short films or theatre performances to art exhibitions, conservation projects, discussion days or nature trails. It really is up to you! However as a guide they welcome ideas which would:
provide a platform for young people’s opinions about the environment to be heard;
encourage young people who have little experience or interest in nature or the outdoors to get involved;
show how nature can promote a healthy lifestyle;
highlight equality issues and celebrate diversity;
showcase the skills of young people.
Who can apply for funding?
You must be aged 11 to 26 years old and live in Scotland to be eligible for funding.
How much funding could you receive?
An individual can apply for £500 to £2000 and a team (2+) can apply for £1000 to £5000.
