The Otesha Project UK

We are a youth-led organisation that helps young people to become agents of change, inspiring others to take small actions which add up to big change towards a cleaner, greener and fairer world.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    We’re taking sustainable living personally. Sometimes we’re nomadic cyclists, other times we’re improv theatre wizards and every so often you can find us shamelessly sowing seeds. We want to spread and share good ideas – from cycling to free-cycling; from free-range to fair trade – and create social and environmental change through our everyday lives.

    At the heart of the Otesha Project you’ll find a two-wheeled revolution. Every summer, teams of wonderful young people are hopping on bikes and travelling across the UK, stopping at schools, festivals and communities along the way to perform the Otesha play and generally make the world a better place.

    And that’s not all. We work with young people in schools, colleges and youth clubs, helping them to set up projects that will make it easier for other people in their schools and communities to live in a cleaner, greener, fairer way.
