Youth Climate Summit 2020

9-13th November

Time is already running out to tackle the climate and ecological emergency. Unlike world leaders, young people are refusing to let it drop off their agenda.

 

 

Schools from around the UK will be coming together online for the Youth Climate Summit during what would have been the week of COP26 to take action to create a more just, sustainable world and make commitments and pledges for the planet.

 

Coordinated by charity Global Action Plan and a team of dedicated teachers, the Youth Climate Summit will be a week-long virtual festival (9-13th November) of days of themed discussions and activities. We’re inviting schools, teachers and organisations all over the UK to submit session ideas and fringe events - explore our site to find out how you can help shape the agenda

 

Full timings and details will be announced soon – many minds are working on what will be an exciting week of coordinated sharing, learning and action in schools and homes across the UK and beyond.
