Coming this November...

 

This November, across four days during the global COP26 Climate Conference, the Transform Our World Youth Summit is bringing together UK schools for an online journey of exploration.

 

Throughout the Summit, young people will learn about practical action, that they have a role to play and that they’re united in compassion with others who care like they do.

 

Each day will focus on a different theme of how we can all play a part in transforming our world, together. Through core sessions, tailored for both primary and secondary schools, and fringe events, each day will feature a range of activities for students to get involved with. Sessions will vary in length and will be driven by student involvement, with practical activities to get stuck into.

Transform our World Summit Finale

 

Throughout the Summit, young people will be taken on a journey, of exploration from the action we can take to change the world around us, to how we can harness the power of youth to influence systems change and how we can make sure that youth voices are heard. They will be joined by our Youth Ambassadors, who will be sharing their own reflections and providing daily updates about COP26.

 

In addition to youth facing sessions, the summit will also feature CPD for teachers and educators.

 

More information about the outline of each day can be seen below.

COP26 Schools Pack

 

Ahead of the Transform Our World Youth Summit and COP26 we recommend using the official COP26 schools pack to introduce the conference into the classroom in an easy and accessible way for teachers and students. 

 

It has been created by Twinkl, WWF and partners and is filled with ideas and tools designed to help your school be a part of the growing green momentum.

 

There are resources for everyone between the ages of 5 to 16.
