Opportunity: free film-making training for Scotland’s youth workers

12th October 2020

Calling Scotland’s youth workers: sign up for free film-making training so you can support young people to create climate emergency films.

Keep Scotland Beautiful have partnered with Screen Scotland through the Youth Climate Film Project to offer free film-making training for youth workers, so they can support young people to create short films that explore the climate emergency from a young person’s perspective.

Young people in Scotland and across the world have played a significant role in highlighting the climate emergency and in pushing for action.

But not all young people understand the way that climate change will shape their future and many of Scotland’s young people have no voice to share their perspective. Two experienced film educators will provide online film-making training using simple and accessible smartphone and tablet technology.

Following the training, youth workers will support young people in their youth work setting to create and show one or more 90 second films exploring the issue of climate change.

To take part in the film-making training, youth workers must have prior knowledge or awareness of climate change. This could include undertaking relevant training; experience gathered via education, volunteering or work; being aware of climate change impacts; or simply following climate change news.

Film-making training dates for October and November are available to book now. Find out more at www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/youthclimatefilmproject
