‘Future voices’ is our new participatory podcast project to give voice to community-led climate action. Specifically, it is about giving you the skills and confidence to start using audio as a means of telling the stories of what you and your community are doing to face up to climate change.
Edinburgh, Tuesday, 21st August, 10am – 4pm
Glasgow, Thursday, 23rd August, 10am-4pm
Edinburgh, Thursday, 30th August, times to be confirmed.

This opportunity is open to community organisations that are members of SCCAN. Deadline for applications is 5pm, Friday 20th July.
Organisations will need to select two participants who commit to active participation in a fun but demanding training and who also commit to sharing their new skills with fellow activists. They will need to be available to attend both the full day training (in either Edinburgh or Glasgow) and the half-day follow-up session in Edinburgh the following week.
We are working with social enterprise, Media Education, to provide this training and ongoing support. Participants will learn skills and confidence in audio podcasting and will also rehearse their coaching skills so that they in turn can train up further volunteers – so as to share and cascade this learning through your group and create a wealth of local awareness-raising and community engagement podcasts on a wide range of climate action-related topics. These podcasts may then be shared online and offered to local, internet and community radio stations.
We want this training to be available to any SCCAN member organisation, irrespective of location or funding situation. The training will therefore be FREE and we hope to be able to provide bursaries towards travel costs, particularly for organisations outwith central Scotland. Please get in touch to discuss this. Also, please note that we hope to be able to deliver training in other parts of Scotland over the coming months.
Contact us and register your interest to take part in this opportunity!
