Helping young people tackle climate change

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.

The Scottish Government are working in partnership with Young Scot and YouthLink Scotland on the COP26 Scottish Youth Climate Programme. 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.

This free online course is for youth workers and those working with young people. It will provide you with an understanding of the climate emergency and equip you with skills and tools to help the young people you work with take climate action. This course is accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project and successful participants will receive a Carbon Literacy certificate.
