The Story Garden, Ossulston Street, London NW1 1DF
Compensation: £30,000 per annum
Paid Full-time Permanent
Founded in 2004, Global Generation is an educational charity, which works together with local children and young people, businesses, residents and families in Camden, Islington and Southwark to create healthy, integrated and environmentally responsible communities.
We aim to create a welcoming, caring and learning culture in which we recognise and promote the diversity of people and nature, breaking down barriers to engagement to help build resilient communities and environments, working together towards a more inclusive, equitable and just world.
Our work connects people of all ages to nature in the middle of the city. We focus on the development of the whole person, providing support for children and young people to grow themselves, grow relationships and grow a new vision for the future. Our gardens provoke curiosity. They are sustainable and creative, giving individuals the opportunity to step beyond the familiar ‘business as usual’ world, encouraging them to join together with others to grow a new story in which the seemingly impossible is continuously in a process of becoming possible.
