In 2019 the British 亿博体育app embarked on an exciting new young people's programme.

In its first year the Greengross Summer Programme comprised a number of workshops, activities and training for young people aged 16–24, co-designed by the first Youth Collective. Seventy young people were welcomed into the 亿博体育app to explore curating, fashion and film using the collection as inspiration.

In 2020, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, a slightly different programme will be delivered, co-designed with our new Youth Collective, made up of 15 diverse young people. Please check this page for further details as the Youth Collective begin to shape their ideas for both online and in-person events.

Further details for joining the Youth Collective in 2021 will appear on this page.
