Shettleston 100 Coordinator

  • Full time
  • £28,000
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 7th January 2022

Funded by the National Lottery, the Shettleston 100 project brings together key partners in Shettleston, led by Fuse Youth Café. It aims to raise awareness of climate change and help reduce wasteful and unsustainable consumption, showing that people can reduce their climate impact whilst also saving money. Shettleston residents will be asked to volunteer to complete purchase, consumption, and waste diaries, which will identify how households can change behaviours to reduce their costs and environmental impact. Individual reports will be produced, highlighting these changes as well as quantifying potential carbon and financial savings.

Following this, volunteers will then be asked to complete diaries for a further period to provide an understanding of the before and after picture.

Community engagement will be supported through filming a selection of the diaries, telling the story of what has worked, the benefits of taking part, the challenges, and how they have been overcome. This material will be used in a digital and social media campaign over the life of the project, involving social media advertising, podcasts, and appearances in existing local media.

A pop-up shopfront will be established to showcase the project and people’s experiences including opportunities for people in the wider community to reduce their wasteful consumption and their carbon footprint. This will also be a venue in which the wider community will come together for events and activities, such as climate cafes, workshops exploring specific themes, or discussions around experiences and findings. In the final three months of the project, a future strategy will be co-produced for waste reduction and consumption in Shettleston.

This is an opportunity to take a 12-month post and turn it into a career. There is no doubt that this work is needed, and the post-holder will receive the full backing of Fuse. The community needs this service, it is a core objective for us and increasingly funders are willing to support Climate Change projects. We just need someone to work with us to develop it further.
