Since 2014, the 2050 Climate Group has been working to engage, educate and empower Scotland’s young people to take action on climate change. We are a youth run – all our team is aged 18-35 – and primarily volunteer-led organisation with a team of over 60 volunteers based across Scotland (we even have a few remote volunteers based in England, the Netherlands and the USA)! Our committed Board focuses on the strategic aims of the organisation while developing new, exciting opportunities for the organisation. Our operational team members run the day to day outputs of the organisation including the Young Leaders Development Programme and our dedicated staff oversee all our efforts. Our ambition is to start a social movement of passionate, active young people who are equipped with climate change knowledge and leadership skills so that our generation can lead the way to a sustainable, low carbon society. With a strong network of over 400 young people and exciting developments on the horizon, we’re confident that we’ll achieve this well before the year 2050.
