New Perspectives 2021-2023

Campaign for National Parks teamed up with Ocean City Media to support young storytellers to share their stories about People, Climate and Nature in National Parks in England and Wales as part of the pilot National Parks: New Perspectives bursary scheme which ran from 2021 – 2023.

The pilot scheme, funded by donations from supporters through a Big Give crowdfunder, which was match funded by the John Spedan Lewis Foundation, opened for applications in late 2021 – with 10 early-career communicators awarded £1,000 each plus expert training and mentoring to deliver their story.

We understand the power of sharing different stories from National Parks to inspire people to love and care for these protected landscapes. From previous projects we’ve run and our ongoing engagement with diverse communities, we also know the importance of making space for – and amplifying – voices of younger people and under-represented groups, offering paid opportunities to develop their storytelling skills. We're delighted with the results of this new programme and hope you enjoy the films and content as much as we do.
