WHO WE ARE

THE 2050 CLIMATE GROUP AIMS TO LEAD A SOCIAL MOVEMENT TOWARDS A LOW CARBON SCOTLAND.

The 2050 Climate Group aims to lead a social movement by engaging, educating and empowering Scotland’s Future Leaders to take action on climate change.

We are a youth run and primarily volunteer-led organisation. We run the Young Leaders Development Programme (YLDP), a free training course providing climate change knowledge and leadership skills development to young people in Scotland.

Our ambition is to start a social movement of passionate, active young people. We are committing ourselves to lead the change, to inspire and be inspired by others, and to lead the transition to a sustainable future beyond 2050.

OUR VISION

THE 2050 CLIMATE GROUP'S LONG TERM STRATEGY

The intention of the group over the next 3 – 5 years is to inspire young leaders to become a catalyst for change, create a social movement and lead the transformational change necessary to address climate change and achieve a low carbon society.

During this initial stage, we will continue to exist as a project within Young Scot, our host organisation. The relationship with Young Scot will be reviewed annually to ensure the 2050 Climate Group has the necessary resources and support for its development.
