Description

Aberdeen Climate Action is an organisation run by volunteers passionate about raising awareness of climate change, its causes and encouraging positive action to reduce carbon emissions and create a sustainable lifestyle. We are looking for others to join our small organisation and help us in our valuable work in the North East. We organise Climate Week, North East, which is a week of events put on by a collaboration of organisations throughout the city and shire. We need help organising this and our regular climate conversation café’s, and one off events, talks etc. There is scope for people to contribute their talents in the area they feel most confident with general volunteer roles, alongside more specialist ones.
This can include assisting with tasks such as:
• Find speakers for Climate Café
• Organise meetings of Climate Café sub group
• Attend meetings, take mini minutes and circulate them
• Deal with email queries re climate café and create links with relevant organisations.
• Chase up action points from meetings re climate café and ensure people are doing what is needed
• Keep an eye on progress and encourage tasks to be completed by deadlines
• Liaise with publicity/ social media team to ensure there is appropriate publicity of Cafe
• Organise creation of publicity materials i.e. flyers for Climate Cafe
• Create working documents and ensure information is inputted i.e. Draft Café topics and speakers spreadsheet.
• Co-ordinate the research in relevant areas i.e. to find new speakers and venues, potential funding ops
• Remind Chair of action points
• Organise the actual Cafés and ensure sufficient helpers will be present, relevant equipment, venue prepared etc.
• Be main point of contact and a conduit for relevant information to and from the ACA main meeting from sub group.

It is crucial role in our organisation but can be done by more than one person if it’s more than you want to do alone! If you’re interested just come along to our meetings and you can meet us all and see for yourself.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a real difference. For more details please contact: Alison Stuart (Director and Chair) email: alison@aberdeenclimateaction.org / Tel: 07779279583.
