Do you know a creative, young person who wants to protect and celebrate our natural environment?

We support young people to tell powerful stories and create meaningful environmental social action projects which support their wellbeing.

OUR PROGRAMS

The Bertha Earth Online Programme is currently open to 11-18-year-olds. The program allows young people to deepen their connection to nature, develop their storytelling skills and learn practices which will support their wellbeing.

Young people can join our summer Project Planet Love campaign, where they will have the flexibility to carry out a project online, in their homes or if possible in their wider communities.
From September 2020, participants will be given the opportunity to deep dive into our One year In School Ambassador Program.
