CPRW Youth Conference
CPRW holds residential youth conferences annually and will hold the next one in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. This is a four day residential course designed for 'A' level students with emphasis on the environment/geography and community issues. 40 young people from schools within the Park and from the neighbouring areas will spend the time studying issues including sustainability, the environment and our ecological footprint on the environment and the role of the community in Pembrokeshire. They will work with experts form a number of statutory and non-statutory organisations. The students will also visit a number of examples of good practice including St Davids to meet the Eco City Group and walk the trail being developed to understand issues regarding building sustainable communities. They will take part in practical conservation work and will gain a John Muir Award - a recognised qualification (see johnmuir.org. for further details).It is hoped that these young people will gain a deeper understanding and interest in the Welsh environment and the opportunities to become sustainable in a protected area. On the last day they will present their findings and their vision about what kind of Park they want to see in the future.
