Introduction to 2050 Climate Group

Our vision is that by 2050, young people will be active citizens, having led and accelerated the progress to a just and sustainable society. Since we formed in 2014, we have been volunteer-driven and the majority of our work is delivered by a large committed group of volunteers with key support from our trustees’ and a small staff team. You'll be joining a

collaborative, innovative and dynamic team which values wellbeing. This will be a great chance to develop yourself and contribute in a real way to tackling the climate crisis. We have been working to empower, equip and enable Scotland's young leaders, aged 18-35, to lead action on tackling the climate crisis. In 2016, the group delivered its first major programme of work, our award-winning Young Leaders Development Programme (YLDP) and our work continues to evolve. In 2018, 2050 Climate Group undertook its first international project in partnership with Malawi Scotland Partnership (MaSP), the Malawi Climate Leaders Project. This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we build on our digital presence after COP26 and look forward to 2022 which has been designated Scotland's Year of Stories. 2050
