This is where you kick off with Bright Green Future!
Residential is jam-packed with workshops about climate change, how the UK can transition to a low-carbon world, and how you can use your strengths to make an impact.

Learning about climate justice and intersectionality from speakers, like Olivia Sweeney, Black and Green Ambassador for Bristol
Exploring the surrounding countryside and practicing ways to get in touch with nature
Starting your group project
Hands on action with canoeing or zip wiring
Time around the fire for toasting marshmallows and making new pals, debriefing climate change and social justice issues
