Climate Emergency Training for Youth Workers
This online course will equip Scotland’s youth workers with a working understanding of the climate emergency and give 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.
The course is funded by the Scottish Government and delivered jointly for free by Keep Scotland Beautiful and Youthlink Scotland.
We are delighted that this course has been accredited by the award winning Carbon Literacy Project in Manchester. On completion of the course participants will be able to apply for a free Carbon Literacy Accreditation Certificate awarded by the Carbon Literacy Project.
The course is split over three modules. The three modules of the course cover climate science and impacts, climate justice and and action/communication. Each module includes 1-2 hours of course work, to go through at your own time and pace, and a 90-minute group webinar.
We will be using Zoom for delivering the webinars. Webinars will be run on a weekly basis and participants need only sign up for the first webinar. Once completing a module participants will be contacted via email with the next module course work and webinar details.
Completion of all course work and participation in all webinars is necessary to complete the course for accreditation.
The course has various start dates in January which are available to book now.
