  • Scottish Communities Climate Action Network - Become a Climate Facilitator

    Created: 15/04/2024
    News/Events Category: Climate/Environment

    Scottish Communities Climate Action Network (SCCAN) is recruiting and training facilitators to run climate conversations throughout Scotland. 

    Having lots of quality conversations about climate change is one of the most effective things we can do to stop it. Climate for Change (C4C) volunteer facilitators are key to making such conversations happen at a scale large enough to really shift the social climate on climate change in Scotland. 

    SCAAN C4C facilitators are trained to run Climate Conversations in people's homes, community organisations, and online. These conversations are part presentation, part facilitated discussion.. The facilitator's role is to help participants understand: 

    • What climate change means for them and the things they care about most 
    • What needs to be done to stop climate change and how quickly 
    • What they can do that is most powerful and effective, then inspire them to take action

    The Training

    During the training, you will learn about what makes a meaningful conversation and how to effectively talk about the problems and solutions with different audiences.

    You will then get to put these ideas into practice. You will meet other volunteer facilitators, meet their Conversation Programme team, and connect with a Mentor who will help you host and then facilitate your first C4C Climate Conversations. They will provide ongoing support and you’ll have the opportunity to further connect with the facilitator community and attend specialist workshops, building on your knowledge and deepening facilitation skills. 

    The best facilitators are not climate change experts but people who are good at listening and passionate about making a difference. Most of the climate change information presented at a Conversation is shown in a video - SCCAN provide training and ongoing support for everything else. 

    They ask facilitators to commit 2-4 hours a week for a minimum of six months, during which time you should aim to facilitate one or two Conversations each month to keep up your momentum.

    How To Apply 

    The training consists of one ‘climate for change’ conversation and training sessions spread over 2 days or 4 evenings . Write to SCCAN for the latest training dates at [email protected]
