  • How are young people showing leadership in shaping decisions now that affect their futures?

This event is part of the 'Together for a Fair Climate Future' online discussion series.

This series of six open events will focus on how action for the climate crisis and social justice can come together and how to recover from the Covid-9 pandemic in a way that's fair, innovative, and positive for the environment. Through the events we hope to develop positive, imaginative visions for wellbeing (social, economic, environmental) and practical actions for change. Involving activists, artists, filmmakers, academics, policymakers, utility companies, community organisers, and others.
