The Portland 4 The Planet – Youth Project is a new collaboration between ICA, Portland 4 The Planet and Atlantic Academy (supported by Portland Town Council).
The project, which will work with 30 young people from across Portland from January to July 2020, focuses on the current Climate and Ecological Emergency and aims to empower young people to find out more about the problems and the solutions, and get inspired to lead the way on local projects that will have a positive impact on a global level.
During the project students will learn more about climate change, biodiversity / wildlife, pollution, single use plastic and sustainable food. They will also take part in conservation activities, media training and volunteering, in addition to creating their own campaign.
Portland 4 The Planet is open to young people aged 10-14 (school years 7, 8 and 9). If you would like to take part (or if you know a child who might be interested), you can apply using the form below. The closing date for applications is Tuesday 7th January.
You can fill in the form electronically and email directly to ICA or print, complete and post / drop into the ICA office. Alternatively, you can drop at the Atlantic Academy reception.
ICA’s contact details are on the form.
