Climate for Change Volunteer Facilitator - Orkney

  • VO90033
  • Home-based volunteering, One-off volunteering


Description

This is an opportunity for someone with passion, commitment and drive to make a big difference to the way Scotland/your locality responds to climate change. The Scottish Communities Climate Action Network (SCCAN) is partnering with Climate for Change (C4C) to launch a brand new climate engagement program for Scotland – Climate Conversations.

You will be one of our first facilitators and help SCCAN kickstart our program in Scotland. Facilitators are our agents of change. As a facilitator you will be part of a team that together will inspire hundreds of people throughout Scotland to stand up on climate change and move society and our leaders to action. This is an exciting role for you to use your love of working with people to empower the community, and to drive a groundswell of community action on climate change.

You will work with volunteer hosts who will invite 8 – 12 friends and family to attend a Climate Conversation online or in their home. At these events, you will present to them about climate change (using our prepared scripts), the urgency for action and facilitate discussion that leads to a commitment to take more effective action. Our mission is to create the social climate for effective climate action in Scotland.
