Recently, young people have played a huge part in raising awareness of the urgent need to tackle the climate emergency and we want YOU to lead the way on action in Fife.
You don’t need to be a climate expert to take part– you just have to want to make a difference, be enthusiastic, and have some exciting ideas.
You will help save the planet (starting with Fife!) while gaining important personal, life and work experience. You will learn new skills, work as a team and make your voice heard!

The Climate Action Fife project are running various climate friendly activities with communities of all ages and backgrounds across Fife. The project is bringing individuals, communities, government and business together, working to tackle the climate emergency and make Fife a greener and fairer place to live.
It’s important that the ideas come from local folk. That’s why we need to hear from young people like you, to help direct our work and create the Fife you want for your community, friends, families and futures.
As well as having a unique experience, this is a great chance to gain skills for employment and something interesting to catch an employers eye. You will learn skills to help you land a job in a range of work areas, including climate and sustainability jobs, community work, marketing and event planning and more.
Just as importantly, it is your chance to make your voice heard, make a difference where you live and to do your bit for the environment in Fife.
You will become one of our team of young climate champions and help us sent out the message about the climate emergency through events, content creation and more.
We will work with you to enable you to lead on the development of campaigns and activities to engage people like you, on climate action. Who better to reach young people than their peers. You know the language that will work; how to avoid turn-offs; what social media platforms to use; and identify what climate actions are of most interest to a you and your friends.
All your ideas and everything you create will be used by Climate Action Fife to help inform community groups across Fife (and beyond) who are looking to get young people involved in climate action.
If you would like to be a climate champion, please get in touch with the project lead Craig Leitch.
Even if this isn’t for you, you can still do your bit by sharing this page with a friend or posting online. The more people that get involved, the better for the planet!
