On Our Wave Length

On Our Wave Length is a youth-led research project exploring environmental impacts on coastal communities. This project is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and delivered in partnership with Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland.  

Our young researchers are based in Argyll and Bute, Fife, North Berwick, South Ayrshire and the Western Isles. As this is youth-led research they have complete freedom to explore the issues that matter most to them and their communities whether this be climate change, industry, pollution, impacts on wildlife, oceans and so on. They are being supported by experts including Scottish Natural Heritage and Marine Conservation Society as well as finding local advice in their communities. 

To ensure the young researcher’s findings are shared far and wide they will be filmed storytelling. The tradition of storytelling is that stories are passed on and so through sharing findings in this way will help ensure that their key messages are spread throughout Scotland, hopefully for years to come.
