About the training

The film-making training for youth workers took place via weekly online webinars and activities. Further commitment is required to help young people make and screen their climate change films.


The film-making training took place in 2020 and no new spaces are currently available.

To attend the training, Youth workers must have had prior knowledge or awareness of climate change. This could include, but is not limited to:

  • Completing or registering for the Climate Emergency Training for Youth Workers course or an equivalent
  • Experience through education, volunteering or work
  • Taking part in climate action projects or discussions
  • Following climate change news and/or watching documentaries
  • Being aware of the impacts of climate change, whether at a local, national or international level

Youth workers also needed to have access to an IOS or Andriod smartphone.

Stage 1: The Training

The course included four live webinars, each of 120-minutes, including breaks and networking. The webinars were delivered by an experienced film educator. An additional time commitment of up to four hours spread over the four weeks was required to complete off-screen activities.

Stage 2: The Films

Following the training, youth workers are now working with young people in their youth work setting to create one or more 90 second films, exploring the issue of climate change from a young person’s perspective. The film educators are on hand to help put learning into practice.

Stage 3: Dialogue

Once the young people have created their films youth workers will support them to host a screening event (virtual or physical) with local influencers, decision-makers and the wider local community to discuss the issues raised in the films.

Keep Scotland Beautiful and Screen Scotland will also host the films on their digital platforms and promote and share the films widely.
