Launched on 2nd June 2020, initially it was a weekly meeting place for young people 11+, it now takes place every other Sunday at 6pm. A safe and friendly place where they can discuss worries, hopes and share ideas and actions. The group is being guided by a young lady, Catherine who grew up in Horsham and is keen to help develop a meeting place (or for now, a Zoom meeting) for local young environmentalists to gather, discuss and connect for an hour of planet-friendly chat.
Both the climate crisis and the current pandemic raise big questions for the future of younger generations and it is important to be able to discuss concerns and to problem-solve in a creative and collaborative way. Sussex Green Living hopes that the creation of this forum will enable young people to tackle eco-anxiety with eco-action and being an essential part of the local green community.
The Youth Eco Forum members have worked together on lots of projects including:
Designed and installed an environmental shop window display in 18 East Street, Horsham.
