Climate change is the biggest challenge that humanity will face in the 21st century but we can do something about it. Individuals have the ability to make positive, sustainable changes to their own behaviour and to inspire larger, climate-positive, systematic changes in society. In the fight against climate change, it is vital that the voices of young people are heard by all. This residential, 5-day course will empower young people to take action on climate change. Young people will cover a range of environmental topics, undertake individual mini-projects and will take part in a CV writing workshop for getting a job in the environmental sector. This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills that you will need to take climate action back to your communities and to make a positive and long-lasting impact.
