The first cohort of Nature Pioneers has embarked on their journey to mobilise community action for nature as part of the Nextdoor Nature project being led by the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

Twelve people from seven community areas have committed to undertake a skills development course over the next six months that will provide them with the understanding, resources and confidence needed to organise action for nature where they live.

Developed by the Trust, the Nextdoor Nature Pioneers Programme involves a combination of online learning, interactive webinars and in-person events. Each participant will also be supported to deliver a community project that benefits wildlife and people. Their projects include community gardens, wildlife ponds and improving valuable river habitats.

The first cohort consists of participants from Ayrshire, Renfrewshire, Lanarkshire and south Glasgow.
