WHAT IS THE JEDI PROGRAMME:
Together with Thames Water, we aim to deliver a tailored programme of water and nature-based activities and to offer a platform and voice for those we are supporting to feel the benefits of connecting to nature.
Celebrate the role of water as a driver for nature wherever you live
Run activities aimed at young people (and families) in marginalised communities who are less likely to be connected to nature, so they can become JEDI Nature Champions
With our support, create content like videos and images involving the JEDI Nature Champions to
improve representation, demonstrate your impact and secure further funding
WHAT’S ON OFFER
We are looking for 3 or 4 groups in the Thames Water region to help us share water based nature activities!
£3,000-4,000 of funding across one year to run 4x water-based nature activities for young people (1 per season)
We will support projects that are aimed at young people and communities who are underrepresented in environmental action and want to share what they are doing. Whether they are long established or just getting started!
Resources such as different nature activities can be found on the Backyard Nature website. Support including storyboards scripts and visits will be made available to selected projects.
