Groundwork Greater Manchester have an ambition to support 3,500 young people to be inspired and supported to learn, achieve, and develop, as more active citizens engage in environmental social action.

As part of Manchester City Council’s youth sector leadership programme, Groundwork’s team of climate change specialists and experienced youth workers have developed a number of resources designed to support youth workers and community group leaders to deliver environmental social action with the young people they work with.
