Tread Magazine

We felt Tread was an apt name for this magazine. Young rural people have a love of place borne of treading its landscape. And tread depicts a moment in life’s walk – a moment in rural history, a moment on life’s journey and a place where ancestors walked before.  We wanted to share these stories with you. Enjoy!

Read the Rural Youth Manifesto

The Manifesto focuses on nine key areas: enterprise, connectivity, housing, transport, rural learning, employment, community and society, representation, and mental health. The overarching aim of the asks within the Manifesto is to raise awareness of what young people need, and, above all, it aims to inspire and encourage decision-makers at all levels to meaningfully engage with young people.
