Climate Writing

Our year long Climate Writing project supported by the Coca-Cola Thank-You Fund, is currently open for applications, until the deadline of 15th of November.  There are 20 places available on the project, and we are looking for a mixture of participants aged 16 to 18 from Belfast -  young writers, climate activists, and those not already engaged in either. Applications should be made by adults responsible for the young person. The project involves monthly writing sessions and workshops to businesses, services and projects involved in climate action, in partnership with Groundwork NI.
