Childhood has moved on
"Childhoods are now very different to how they were half a century ago. Technology has delivered many advantages, but many children spend hours glued to screens instead of exploring the outside world.
In a technology-driven world I feel it is more important than ever that we connect with young people and show them how they can benefit from engaging with nature."
Emma Thornton, Trustee and Youth Advisory Panel member
Reaching out, connecting and supporting
In 2021 and 2022, BTO Youth reached over 2,300 young people at 75 events across the four UK countries engaging them in nature and science through a range of local and online events.
Please help us to reach more young people.
