Young People & Nature films
A new film series exploring young people's connections with the outdoors.
The Trust commissioned up-and-coming film maker Martin MacLeod, 22, to direct, shoot and edit a series of films to help share what young people think about nature and the outdoors, inspired by Year of Young People 2018 in Scotland, and Year of Green Action 2019 #iwill4nature.
Sarra, a Volunteer Community Champion for Forestry Commission Scotland, finds peace in her favourite outdoor place – Glasgow's Pollok Park.
Join Izzy, a Conservation Officer at the John Muir Trust, as she gives back to nature by planting trees at East Schiehallion.
Oscar's and Tommy's story
Oscar and Tommy, Junior Rangers at Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, and the Cairngorms National Park, share feelings and ideas in national parks and locally.
Meet the filmmaker
“This project has made me reflect on the outdoors a lot more. Asking the question of how you engage with the outdoors to those young people I met, made me think about the role of this film to inspire others about nature. I hope that’s what the films have done in the end.” - Martin MacLeod
