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 change training
Our climate change training for youth leaders will equip Scottish youth workers with a working understanding of the climate emergency and gives them skills and tools to nurture and direct young people’s concern into positive practical action.
Although the focus for the training is youth workers, it is also open to young people who are leaders and mobilisers.
Climate Ready Classrooms, the Youth Leader Climate Change Project and Eco-Schools Scotland are all supported by the Scottish Government.
