Youth Committee

Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Youth Committee is a group of dedicated young people aged between 11-25 years old who are passionate about the National Park and making a difference.

The committee was formed during the Year of Young People in 2018 #YOYP2018 to ensure that young people have a voice in the decision making of the National Park Authority, now and for the future.
