The 2050 Climate Group announced as a Finalist for the Scottish Green Energy Awards


 The finalists for this year’s Scottish Green Energy Awards include the 2050 Climate Group, Scotland’s youth climate group, for their contribution to skills in over 150 young people in Scotland.

Over the past year, the 2050 Climate Group have been running their Young Leaders Development Programme. The programme’s pilot year welcomed 130 of Scotland’s future leaders to participate in 8 core modules on climate change and leadership, which were organised by the group’s 20 ‘main group’ members. Describing the programme, Elizabeth Dirth, Chair of the 2050 Climate Group, said: “The Young Leaders Development Programme is a world-first for young people. Scotland continues to provide an example of climate change leadership at this crucial time, and our programme, and the cross-sector, cross-region, cross-generation support for it, is just one example of this leadership.”

The success of their Scottish Green Energy Awards nomination follows their recent awards presented by the ScottishPower Foundation for “Community Impact and Engagement” and “Innovation” earlier this year.

Scottish Renewables received over 130 nominations for the Awards scheme, which aims to recognise the determination, innovation, people, organisations and communities that have helped the renewable energy industry evolve.

Niall Stuart, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said: “Once again the Scottish Green Energy Awards shortlist shines a light on the most innovative, forward-thinking and sustainable projects, organisations and individuals in our industry. There have been some important projects delivered over the last 12 months and the shortlist shows clearly how our sector is helping grow the economy, tackle climate change and support communities across the country.”

The overall winner will be announced at the Scottish Green Energy Awards 2016 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Thursday 1st December 2016.
