About the Event
COP26 in Glasgow has shown that young people are becoming more aware of and involved in tackling the climate emergency. Those working with young people have a key role in helping them to understand and navigate the challenges that come with it.
Museums Galleries Scotland has partnered with Keep Scotland Beautiful to deliver an accredited course, Becoming Carbon Literate. This course is accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project and successful participants will receive a Carbon Literacy certificate. Becoming Carbon Literate gives lots of opportunities to enhance youth work practice, to engage young people, build their skills and confidence and amplify their voices in different ways.
