The Youth Panel
The Youth Panel operates as an advisory group to the Board of Directors. It comprises a variety of young people of different ages who have been involved in our programmes. The Youth Panel provides feedback, ideas and opinions and provides the Board with the views of young people.
In February 2009 the Green Team Board appointed the first Green Team Patron, Peter Wright.
Peter began his career in Youth Work and Community Education going on to become the Manager of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Unit in the City of Edinburgh from 1989-2007. He co-founded Youth in Trust – now the National Trust for Scotland Conservation Volunteers, and Thistle Camps. Peter set up the Green Team in 1995 to offer an environmental opportunity to those taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. He also helped to establish the John Muir Award. He is currently Convenor and Treasurer of the History of Education Centre in Edinburgh. In 2005 Peter was awarded an MBE for services to the community.
We are only able to run our programmes because of the financial support that we have received and continue to receive from funders and donors – our thanks goes out to them all.
