This programme aimed to ensure that young people played a key role within the work relating to COP26 and in Scotland’s response to the climate emergency by increasing awareness of climate change and supporting young people to get involved with climate action and decision making locally, nationally, and globally.
From August 2021 – March 2022 YouthLink Scotland delivered a Scottish Government funded project in partnership with Young Scot and Keep Scotland Beautiful to support youth workers and young people across Scotland to engage in the COP26 conversation and have the skills, tools, confidence to take climate action in their own youth work settings and their own local communities.
What was COP26?
The UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 13 November 2021. The COP26 summit brought parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Find out more here.
