    About this opportunity:Greener Kirkcaldy (GK) are looking for Fifers who are passionate about climate change and who enjoy talking to people. They want your help to plan and deliver their programme of climate change engagement events and training in Kirkcaldy.

    Their events aim to get the climate conversations going through interactive, thought provoking and fun activities. They may be on a particular climate theme or may be general climate change awareness raising events.
