Age 16-25? Interested in how we can reduce the effects of climate change?
Then why not join the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) Grant Panel - a team that makes recommendations to the Minister for Environment and Climate Change on projects which should receive funding.
What is the project about?
Young Scot will support youth volunteers to develop a range of skills needed to be on a judging panel including decision making, social media skills, presentations and communication.
After your training is complete you will become a member of the CCF Grant Panel where you will have an opportunities to attend panel meetings and make decisions on which Climate Change projects should be funded!
Participants will also be supported to work towards achieving a Participative Democracy Certificate, which is an award for young people who are actively involved in decision making. To do this you will:
- Meet regularly as a team and also work together online
- Encourage young people to get involved with climate change
- Make decisions on which new and interesting climate challenge projects receive funding
- Be an ambassador for the fund, attending events and meeting high level officials
This project will give you the chance to challenge yourself, be innovative and make your CV stand out from the crowd!
- Develop your skills through experiences and training
- Increase your confidence- be empowered and challenge the people at the top!
- Meet other people from across Scotland and work in a team
- All your travel, food & accommodation costs will be covered!
