Young people from West of Scotland Regional Equality Council investigate the impact of working from home in tackling carbon emissions as well as Covid-19.

This film was produced as part of the Youth Climate Film Project (YCFP) and submitted as an entry to the ‘Vision for Future’ category.

The YCFP is an initiative delivered by Keep Scotland Beautiful with funding from the Scottish Government and The National Lottery through Screen Scotland. The YCFP is also supported by Take One Action who will feature the films produced in their film directory. The initiative has involved youth workers attending film-making training so they could support young people to create short films that explore the climate emergency from a young person’s perspective. The films are being screened to stimulate discussion about climate change.
