Big Announces New £30 Million Environment Fund (UK)

The Big Lottery Fund announced a new funding programme, Our Environment Our Future. This UK-wide £30 million investment is set to support projects enabling young people (aged 11-24) to improve their local environment and increase their employability through learning new skills.
The Big Lottery Fund is now seeking a UK-wide strategic partner to coordinate this new funding programme which opens to applications next year. Our Environment Our Future will see the Big Lottery Fund bring together, for the first time, two core areas of its investment – environment and young people. One of the key objectives of the programme will be to support projects that enable young people across the UK to participate and take the lead in the growing green economy. The £30 million available will fund a number of individual projects (25-35) across the UK to scale-up or replicate.
The deadline is the 16 May 2014 for organisations to apply for the role of UK-wide strategic partner.
