Youth Focus NW Ltd

POSH Project

Youthforia, the North West Youth Forum is run by a group of thirteen young people in partnership with staff from Youth Focus North West. The aim is to enable young people from across the region to work together to improve the life experiences of young people and have a collective voice across the region. The 'POSH' project has emerged over the last twelve months led by members of Youthforia who want to address concerns related to the lack of awareness among young people about creating a sustainable world, the lack of education for young people on sustainable living, and lack of opportunity for young people to get involved in sustainable living campaigns/projects. The aim of POSH is to create a citizenry that takes responsibility for the natural world.
