Youth Climate Film Project

We are delighted to be celebrating climate change films produced by young people as part of the Youth Climate Film Project, an initiative delivered by us and funded by Screen Scotland.

Young people in Scotland and across the world have played a significant role in highlighting the climate emergency and in pushing for action. But not all young people understand the way that climate change will shape their future and many of Scotland’s young people have no voice in what is probably the single biggest challenge that their generation will face.

That's why we are delighted to partner with Screen Scotland through the Youth Climate Film Project (YCFP). The YCFP is an initiative delivered by Keep Scotland Beautiful with funding from the Scottish Government and The National Lottery through Screen Scotland.

The YCFP has involved free film-making training for 83 youth workers, so they could support young people across the country to create short films that explore the climate emergency from a young person’s perspective.

Two experienced film educators provided the online film-making training in 2020 using simple and accessible smartphone and tablet technology. Following the training, youth workers supported young people in their youth work setting to create one or more 90 second films exploring the issue of climate change. This has empowered young people to tell their climate change stories and express their views through the medium of film and stimulate discussion on climate change.

The films produced are being screened online locally by the young people and youth groups to stimulate discussion about climate change. In addition we are delighted to be celebrating the films nationally from 12 April.

You will be able to view each film via this webpage shortly after it is released and watch out for the hashtag #YouthClimateFilmProject on our social media channels. The films will be also be featured in the Take One Action Film Directory.

We have produced a communications pack to assist youth groups to promote films they have produced as part of the Youth Climate Film Project. You can access the communications pack here.
