Designed by schools for schools, and happening during the week (9-13th Nov) of what would have been the COP 26 Summit in Glasgow, the Youth Climate Summit has been put together by a dedicated group of teachers with the support of environmental charity Global Action Plan, who are hosting the event on the Transform Our World teacher resource hub. The week will also see the launch of Let’s Go Zero – a campaign for schools to pledge to be Carbon Zero by 2030.
Over 50 supporter organisations have come together to run sessions across five themed days, with a total of 150 online events hosted by primary and secondary schools, organisations and charities.
The Summit helps schools turn their curiosity into commitments, and at the end of the week a panel event on Friday 13th November will see young people present the pledges from the week to a panel of experts. http://youthclimatesummit2020.org/
