Climate Emergency Training for Youth Workers

Registration is open for a free online course to give Scotland’s youth workers an understanding of the climate emergency and equip them with the skills and tools to help 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.

The climate emergency training is part of the Youth Leader Climate Project which is delivered by Keep Scotland Beautiful and YouthLink Scotland and funded by the Scottish Government.

Course participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about climate science, the impacts of climate change and responses at a local, national and international level
  • Investigate the impact of their own behaviour and how to make changes that will help to tackle climate change
  • Discuss how they can best communicate and inspire young people to respond to climate change

The course is one full day of learning, spread across three modules. Each module consists of between one and two hours of course work, that participants can do in their own time at their own pace, and a 90-minute group webinar.

In addition to the course, a toolkit will be made available for participants to use in a wide range of settings to engage, inform and mobilise young people to play their part in responding to the climate emergency.

Participants who successfully complete the three modules can apply to gain official Carbon Literate accreditation through the Carbon Literacy Project.
