Enagh Youth Forum actively encourages all young people to learn about and care for the natural environment and the world around us. Each year young people successfully plan and carry out a number of community clean up projects aimed at promoting pride of place.
At EYF we believe strongly in the benefits of outdoor learning. Concepts on the environment and biodiversity become real and relevant. Many of these concepts are a lot easier for children and young people to understand in the big world when they are set in context and the young people more engaged and motivated to understand and learn.
Enagh Youth Forum subscribes to the ethics of ‘Leave No Trace’. We teach and inspire young people to enjoy the outdoors responsibly. We promote this message in all of our environmental campaigns and outdoor pursuits programme.
Enagh Lough is an outstanding area of natural beauty. At Enagh Youth Forum we not only utilise the Lough for canoeing and kayaking but also carry out regular clean ups and community events aimed at protecting it for the future. Young people plan and organise events aimed at raising awareness on the importance of protecting Enagh Lough so it can be enjoyed by future generations.
