Youth Eco Forum

Hi! We’re the Youth Eco Forum from Sussex Green Living. We’re a small group aged between 14-21 years old, of environmentally concerned people who can’t ignore the climate and ecological crises unfolding around us.

So, as a group, we get together on zoom, usually once a month, sometimes to work on projects, other times to have talks with experts in a huge range of fields, and other times, to visit inspiring people and places in the world of sustainability, to learn, get active, and get inspired.

Sometimes we help at the Sussex Green Hub, at other public events engaging with the public and even delivering lessons in schools and kids groups.

What We Do

We started in 2020 and here are some of the diverse things we’ve done so far:

  • Made e-magazines about topics that interest us, the events we attend, see them below.
  • Walked the Serpent Trail with a South Downs National Park Ranger, learning about local nature, conservation projects and job opportunities.
  • Wrote to our MP to raise our voices and be active in the democratic process (lots of us can’t yet vote).
  • Went on a Butterfly Walk in a regenerated plot of land with an expert Ecologist/ Conservationist.
  • Helping a children’s fun eco playdays and delivering sessions in schools, for those who want to!
  • Those YEF members who would like to can volunteer with Sussex Green Living at public events with the eco float and at the once a month Sussex Green Hub, learn more here.
