What is Future Routes?

As part of the Year of Young People 2018, Scottish Natural Heritage, Young Scot and ReRoute have created a new fund for young people called Future Routes. Future Routes is open to individuals and groups of young people from across Scotland aged 11-26 who have an idea which will promote Scotland's amazing natural environment in 2018.

ReRoute want young people in Scotland to be aware of and enjoy Scotland's amazing nature, environment and landscapes. They hope that Future Routes will enable young people from all areas of Scotland to learn about, be inspired by and contribute to Scotland's incredible outdoors!
