Follow in the footsteps of the Young Environmentalists

( Last Updated: 19-08-2009 )

The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team is calling for applications for this year's Sustainable Development Fund (SDF), a grant scheme which helps people to improve their local environment, economy or way of life.

Somerset Rural Youth Project have come up with a project to do just this.  Blackdowns Young Environmentalists aims to bring together young people living in the Blackdown Hills with their parishes and local environmental organisations.  The youngsters will have the chance to learn traditional skills and carry out practical projects that will benefit their communities.  There will also be opportunities for young people from nearby urban areas to join taster sessions.  

Nickie Moore, AONB project co-ordinator, said "We're particularly keen to help people who are new to running projects or who want to experiment with new ways of doing things."

Guidance, application forms and checklists, along with examples of projects that have been awarded funding, can be found on the AONB website at http://www.blackdown-hills.net/.

Alternatively you can discuss ideas with Nickie Moore or Caroline Newcombe, who can assist you in completing your application. Call 01823 680681 or email nickie.moore@devon.gov.uk or caroline.newcombe@devon.gov.uk
