Climate Emergency training for youth workers and those working with young people

YouthLink Scotland, in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful and Young Scot, is offering FREE training for youth workers to learn about the Climate Emergency, with a focus on climate justice and young people’s engagement in the climate movement. The aim of this training is for youth workers to feel more confident in talking about climate change and related issues with young people, and feel able to make suggestions and provide support for young people to take climate action, whether they have been active in the climate movement before or not.

The training is split between three modules, each two hours long. These can be taken over three weeks, or condensed into a single day. With homework tasks in between, the training takes a total of 7-8 hours, and after completing the end of course assessment, you will be certified as Carbon Literate by the Carbon Literacy Project, a nationally recognised certification. Taking part in the training also counts towards CPD hours.

The course is free of charge until March 2022 and we are encouraging as many youth workers as possible to sign up while they can! 

Find out more about the training and sign up. There's a variety of dates and times available for January and February 2022, but bespoke training for a minimum of 20 participants is also available to youth work organisations.

Get in touch to find out more.
