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.
Climate Emergency Training for youth workers and those working with young people
Youth worker toolkit
This toolkit aims to help youth workers inform young people about the climate emergency, and empower them to take positive action.
The toolkit includes activities to help young people learn about, and discuss the impact of our choices on climate change, environment and people. The activities also introduce opportunities to find out more and take positive action to tackle climate change.
Youth Climate Film Project
Climate Ready Classrooms, the Youth Leader Climate Change Project and Eco-Schools Scotland are all supported by the Scottish Government.
