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.

The 2050 Climate Group, Scotland’s youth climate group, is a collection of young professionals across Scotland who all share a commitment to climate change mitigation and adaptation and accelerating Scotland’s transition to a low carbon economy.

Drastic cuts have already been made by businesses and institutions across the country, and now we feel transformational change, a new normal, is necessary.  2050 starts now. 

We are committing ourselves now to lead the change, to inspire and be inspired by others and to start a movement of passionate, like-minded individuals who want to ensure a sustainable future beyond 2050.

The 2050 Climate Group is made up of 25 Board of Trustees and 6 Operational Sub-Groups.

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.
