The pictures are a unique way of recognising young people and marking National Youth Week.

National Youth Week celebrates everything about young people and the valuable contribution they make to our community every day.

The pictures show our young people’s enthusiasm and determination to protecting our environment.

Each picture details why the young people are passionate about the environment and their vision to make a difference in the future.


The pictures were captured by young photographer Natalie Evans and will be on display until mid-April.

The City will also host a number of events and activities for National Youth Week, for more information keep an eye out on our youth page.
