Opportunity: Our Food. Our Future: Get involved in shaping the future of Slow Food Youth Network in Scotland.
We want young people to contribute their ideas to create a more sustainable food future for Scotland
Slow Food Youth Network Scotland was started 2 years ago to encourage the development of a network of young people across Scotland who wanted to learn, debate, campaign, farm, cook, eat and dance their way to a more sustainable food future whilst exchanging ideas with young change-makers across the world.
By learning more about Scotland’s food system in a fun and social way, supporting local projects and building strong connections with the international Slow Food Youth Network – we have begun to bring people together to help create change within the global food system. In our third year, and Scotland’s Year of Young People, we want to build on our success by expanding the network and have lots of ideas to make this happen.
Join the first Slow Food Youth Network Scotland Committee!
In order to shape the future for SFYNScotland we are recruiting volunteers who can commit to join our first ‘committee’, become a local SFYN ambassador or occasional event volunteer – ideally spread across Scotland! For the coordinating committee we are looking for individuals who can commit to a minimum of 2 days per month. We’re particularly keen to hear from individuals with creative skills or expertise and/or with communications, web design, fundraising, marketing, research, illustration, campaigning, photography, events, or film-making skills (& we’re sure there’s things we haven’t thought of!)
There are also plenty of opportunities to join as an events volunteer or to become an ambassador in your local area as well! Join us at one of the volunteer sessions below to find out more or get in touch & tell us a little bit about yourself via firstname.lastname@example.org.
