Get involved in shaping the future of Slow Food Youth Network in Scotland.
Slow Food Youth Network Scotland was started 2 years ago to encourage the development of a network of young people across Scotland who wanted to learn, debate, campaign, farm, cook, eat and dance their way to a more sustainable food future whilst exchanging ideas with young change-makers across the world.
By learning more about Scotlandâ€™s food system in a fun and social way, supporting local projects and building strong connections with the international Slow Food Youth Network â€“ we have begun to bring people together to help create change within the global food system. In our third year, and Scotlandâ€™s Year of Young People, we want to build on our success by expanding the network and have lots of ideas to make this happen.
Join the first Slow Food Youth Network Scotland Committee!
In order to shape the future for SFYNScotland we are recruiting volunteers who can commit to join our first â€˜committeeâ€™, become a local SFYN ambassador or occasional event volunteer â€“ ideally spread across Scotland! For the coordinating committee we are looking for individuals who can commit to a minimum of 2 days per month. Weâ€™re particularly keen to hear from individuals with creative skills or expertise and/or with communications, web design, fundraising, marketing, research, illustration, campaigning, photography, events, or film-making skills (& weâ€™re sure thereâ€™s things we havenâ€™t thought of!)
There are also plenty of opportunities to join as an events volunteer or to become an ambassador in your local area as well! Join us at one of the volunteer sessions below to find out more or get in touch & tell us a little bit about yourself via firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Creative Carbon Scotland:
Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the publicâ€™s emotions, values and ideas.
