Encouraging young people to make the most of their out of their local outdoor spaces.


Scottish Natural Heritage and Young Scot have launched a new campaign inspiring young women to get outside. Freshspace, which was created in Scotland's Year of Young People, has been co-designed by young women to highlight and address the issues that stop girls spending time outdoors. The project aims to promote the range of health and wellbeing benefits that our natural environment can provide for teenage girls aged 14-18 in Scotland, and includes a series of unique animations.

You can also see the different ways in which Scottish Natural Heritage is promoting local nature, greenspaces and the outdoors to teenage girls by following the campaign hashtag, #GirlsGetOot.

If you'd like to get involved, we have a range of stills from our animations and a selection of imagery of girls enjoying outdoor spaces which can be used in relation to this campaign. Please use these in combination with our Social Media and Partners Toolkit.
