Call for youth organisations to host free climate change training
Many young people are extremely concerned about climate change as evidenced in the youth climate strikes.
The Youth Leader Climate Change Project will help Scotland’s Youth Work leaders understand the climate emergency and develop skills and tools to nurture and direct young people’s concern into practical and positive action.
The project will offer free climate change training with an option for participants who successfully complete the training to gain official accreditation through our partnership with the Carbon Literacy Project. There is also the option for Youth Workers to train as climate change trainers.
Another feature of the project will be a toolbox of activities, resources and ideas that Youth Workers will be able to use to help young people to play their part in responding to the climate emergency.
The Climate Strikes are just one example that shows young people are worried about climate change and want to see more action taken. The Youth Leader Climate Change Project will equip you with the tools to empower young people to turn their concerns about climate change into positive action.

Although the focus for the training is Youth Workers, it is also open to young people who are leaders and mobilisers.
Please get in touch if you’d like to host a climate change training day or event for your youth network or organisation.
The Youth Climate Change Project is funded by the Scottish Government.
