About the training
The film-making training for youth workers takes place via weekly online webinars and activities. Further commitment is required to help young people make and screen their climate change films.
To register for a space on the film-making training you must be a youth worker and have completed or registered for the Climate Emergency Training for Youth Workers course or equivalent training.
Stage 1: The Training
The course includes four live webinars which will each last 120-minutes, including breaks and networking. The webinars will be delivered by an experienced film educator. An additional time commitment of up to four hours spread over the four weeks is required to complete off-screen activities.
Stage 2: The Films
Following the training, you will work with young people in your 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 will be on hand to help you put your learning into practice.
Stage 3: Dialogue
Once the young people you work with have created their films you 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.
How do I register?
To take part in the film-making training, youth workers must have 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

We expect the film-making training to be over-subscribed, so please only register if you can commit to attending all four training webinars, the weekly activities and supporting the young people you work with to make and screen their films.
The same training course is being repeated six times over the next three months. If you cannot commit to the times of the courses currently advertised, please wait for further training times to be released.
