Race for Nature's Recovery

Race for Nature’s Recovery is a project led by Action for Conservation, Generation Success, Students Organising for Sustainability UK and Voyage Youth. The project leverages Government investment via the Kickstart Scheme to place young people from predominantly Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds in work placements at environmental organisations.

While the Kickstart Scheme provides a financial springboard for this work, we know that additional support is needed to enable both young people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and host organisations to maximise the opportunity, embed change and deliver lasting benefit to both the young people and their host organisations. 

Our partnership will therefore lead a wider support programme alongside the placements to support host organisations and young people, bolstering the impact of the scheme and creating lasting, transformative change in the sector.
