Our BTO Youth Advisory Panel
To engage young people, we need to listen to young people. We need to understand the barriers they face and hear their ideas about what they think will encourage more young people to become interested and engaged with BTO. Our Youth Advisory Panel was set up to help BTO get better at connecting with younger supporters. Over the course of 2020, our 10 panellists have been working with staff and the BTO Board on an exciting and inclusive Youth Engagement Strategy. They have provided personal insights, conducted market research, and raised the profile of our work, laying the groundwork for plans which will help BTO inspire the next generation of birdwatchers. The vision that the panel has developed for BTO’s engagement with young people is: “A diverse, vibrant community of young birders supported by the BTO, with accessible, youth-led opportunities inspiring young people to engage with nature and science.”
