About the event 

#YSHive is working with the Just Transition Commission to run a digital workshop for up to 20 young people, offering you the opportunity to discuss what climate change will mean for the way we live, learn and work. Anyone in the age range can attend and we welcome a mix of experience and knowledge of the topics. We are happy to make any reasonable adjustments based on your needs that will enable you to attend.  

This interactive workshop will explore your insights and ideas to help the Commission’s work and you will: 

  • Hear from a Commissioner about Scotland’s climate change targets, what just transition means and why it is important to consider as we tackle climate change
  • Consider what kind of Scotland you would like to see by 2045
  • Identify the main impacts and issues directly related to young people’s own lives including the future impact on skills and education 

This digital workshop will be hosted by our staff and member of the Just Transition Commission. Anonymous notes will be taken, and a report will be provided to the Commission with the findings from this session. 

You will receive 50 Young Scot Rewards points for attending.
