Join the 2050 Climate Group for their 2nd Youth Climate Summit held this year at the TIC in Glasgow.
We have flipped the “climate conference” concept on its head, and will instead be focusing on how a whole spectrum of sectors will be affected by climate change. It will also provide participants with skills and understanding of how they can be future leaders.
With a diverse range of talks and workshops, this is a great opportunity for anyone in Scotland aged roughly 20-30 (unfortunately over 35s/under 18s will not be considered) to learn about the challenges in all our futures and how to get ready for the low carbon transition we need.
Workshops will focus on the arts, energy & technology, business, policy, health and individual leadership. You do not need to be a climate change expert to attend this event. We are hoping to engage with young people passionate about LEADING FOR THE FUTURE!
