Environmental issues such as the illicit wildlife trade, plastic waste, and deforestation are more than long term concerns – they’re challenges that are already having severe negative consequences. To play a role overcoming these environmental problems, HIN supports youth in launching advocacy campaigns, allowing them to take the lead in designing and implementing campaigns, and provides the mentorship that is often needed to ensure youth’s ideas can come to fruition.

Through these campaigns, HIN allows youth to build on their environmental education, while also developing within them the lifelong skills they need to be effective environmental advocates and active citizens.
