Now probably more than at any other time, young people urgently need help to find work to secure a safe future for themselves and for the planet. Friends of the Earth have produced a detailed document outlining how Councils, Businesses, Education and Trades Unions can help achieve this.

We're facing an emergency - the biggest threat to our very existence and to much of the natural world we've ever seen. And yet our leaders are letting us down.
The solutions to the climate crisis are out there, and they're achievable. So join us to kickstart Climate Action Preston and connect with others who want to make these solutions a reality.
Climate Action Preston is gathering strength. See the latest plans and activities on facebook and twitter, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
