What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Three-quarters of young people spend less time outdoors than prison inmates. When the data is dissected it is those from ethnic minorities and who experience poverty who are affected the most. How can we ever expect these groups of young people to value the environment and play a role in its protection if they never experience it first hand? GET OUT not only ensures all young people in Tower Hamlets will be able to experience the natural world we also help improve lives through the teaching of vital life skills such as leadership skills and problem-solving. Skills that will create more mature and confident individuals within their communities and throughout their lives.
