At this Green Tease event BBC The Social and Creative Carbon Scotland are running a workshop on creating content about climate change. Whether it’s about raising awareness on important issues or sharing positive stories – we’ll share our successful tips on how to cut through the noise and engage people.
This is also a chance for you to learn more about working with BBC The Social and get an insight into BBC Scotland. BBC The Social are looking for the next generation of passionate creators who make compelling content about the climate crisis and have real impact.
You’ll get a chance to get creative and workshop ideas then pitch them to BBC The Social producers. You’ll get an insight into how to forge and develop a career in an exciting and creative organisation like BBC Scotland.
We’ll hear from Christina Sinclair about her journey from BBC The Social contributor to working with the Natural History Unit on Frozen Planet II’s digital campaign. She’ll also share her top tips for how to engage audiences on a difficult topic.
Christina joined BBC The Social as a contributor in 2020 with the aim to inspire and educate audiences about the amazing nature found around Scottish coastlines, from otters to jellyfish, as well as how we can protect it. Fast forward to 2023 and she’s now an Assistant Producer with the BBC Natural History Unit making short films to inspire action for the climate crisis. In this session Christina will describe how her career has progressed over the years and share some top tips on how to make engaging environmental content.
About BBC The Social
We are a talent development project at BBC Scotland called BBC The Social. We work with new content creators from all across Scotland and have helped develop people’s skills to get them into the media industry in jobs and also helped them develop content for the BBC Scotland channel and iPlayer and beyond. We work with new creators and publish their content on our social and digital channels and people get paid when their content is published. Read more here.
We’re always looking for new contributors and want to fully represent Scotland and our audience. In particular we’re looking for new content creators to cover environmental issues and topics. We have covered these before but are always looking for new and engaging ways to cover these – here’s a collection of our previous content on the topic.
