Canal & River Trust

Following our consultation on the Trust’s youth communications activity we delivered two youth projects that demonstrated the positive impact that young people could make on the waterways.

#TeenStrategy Objective:

Engage young people and provide a teen voice in the development of the Trust’s national youth engagement strategy.

#TeenStrategy Solution:

Recruit a diverse range of young people and develop & deliver youth engagement across a number of projects and campiagns.

  • Management of a number of direct youth projects
  • Create Pop-up Trust youth engagement agency ‘Digital Edge’
  • Establishment of a youth-focused social media channel Trust social media youth takeover day
  • Produce internal ‘Guide to Engaging Young People’
