Generation Change members Uprising, vInspired and UnLtd will receive part of a new £33m funding pot from the Big Lottery Fund. Our Bright Future aims to tackle three big challenges facing society today - a lack of social cohesion, a lack of opportunities for young people and vulnerability to climate change. Thirty one youth-led projects across the UK are receiving around £1m each of National Lottery funding to give young people the skills and knowledge to improve their local environments - from reducing marine pollution to minimising food waste. In doing so, young people will develop the confidence and resilience to become environmental leaders and influence decisions at local and national levels.
