Right from its inception in November 2015 Footsteps has endeavoured to involve young people in its work and activities, not least because young people will be the generation most affected by, but which has done least to cause, climate change. 

A number of activities have been run specifically for young people, most notably the ‘Small Footsteps’ interfaith environmental summer schools for young people in 2016 and 2017.
