advancing environmental education, young people's lives and the community


GET OUT is a registered UK charity, founded in 2018 and based in the London borough of Tower Hamlets.

The founding goal of GET OUT is to use environmental education to strengthen the connection between Tower Hamlets' young people and the natural world.

Through a free programme of outdoor education, surfing, campaigning and permaculture projects GET OUT strives to give young people self-confidence, life skills and experiences which will help them in education, life and as environmentally-conscious members of their local and global communities.

We believe ALL young people deserve the same opportunities to experience nature and become voices for its protection regardless of their background.

Registered in July 2018, the charity was founded by its director Kieran Harkin, a conservationist and educator with 12 years’ experience working for non-profit organisations and over 500 days experience in leading groups of young people in wilderness area. .

At GET OUT we want to ensure that the importance of environmental protection is embedded and instilled in people’s values from a young age. Centred on the belief that people will only protect what they love, we believe it is essential for ALL young people to experience and value the natural world.
