Young people and climate change
We help Scottish schools and youth workers to develop effective climate change programmes for young people.
Across the world, young people are urging political, business and community leaders to take climate change seriously, raise their level of ambition and move from talking to action. Paradoxically, Scottish young people believe that many of their peers are not sufficiently aware of the severity of the situation and are calling for more to be done to embed climate learning into schools and other learning contexts.
Youth Leader Climate Project
We have a toolkit available to help youth workers nurture and direct young people’s climate change concern into positive practical action. In 2020/21 we completed delivery of Climate Emergency Training for youth workers in partnership with YouthLink Scotland to equip Scottish youth workers with a working understanding of the climate emergency.
Although the focus for the training was youth workers, it was also open to young people who are leaders and mobilisers. The training was funded by the Scottish Government.
Youth Climate Film Project
Climate Ready Classrooms, the Youth Leader Climate Change Project and Eco-Schools Scotland are all supported by the Scottish Government.
