Climate Emergency training for those working with young people
With extreme weather events in the news almost daily and the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) happening in Scotland in November 2021, it has never been more important to provide opportunities for our young people to talk and learn about climate change. We want to ensure that youth workers across Scotland feel equipped and confident to continue to support young people to have a voice and take climate action.
This free training course will provide Scotland’s youth workers with a working understanding of the climate emergency and give them the skills and tools to help young people they work with to take action.
We are providing this training as part of the COP26 Scottish Youth Climate Programme, which we are delivering with Young Scot and Keep Scotland Beautiful. The programme is funded by the Scottish Government. The programme will ensure that young people can play a key role in Scotland’s response to the climate emergency, and that youth workers and those who work with young people are equipped to support them to do so.
The course consists of one full day of learning which is spread across three online modules:
- Module 1: Introduction to climate change and youth work.
- Module 2: Climate impacts, climate justice and adaptation.
- Module 3: Climate action and communication.
There is also an opportunity for participants who successfully complete the three modules to gain official Carbon Literate accreditation through our partnership with the Carbon Literacy Project.
