One Young World believes that young people’s voices, especially those from communities which are often disproportionately impacted by the consequences of climate change deserve a seat at the table. This is why One Young World is committed to furthering youth representation at COP26 and will continue to work closely with the British government’s Youth Engagement team and other NGOs, world leaders and businesses to highlight young leaders and their work. One Young World is working hard to ensure young people across the world are involved in COP26 and can use this historic Summit as an opportunity to create meaningful change on climate.
One Young World is also proud to partner with EXTREME International on a dynamic hub in Glasgow at COP26 where young people can come together to network, share ideas, learn from others, be inspired and ultimately leave with a renewed passion, understanding and urgency to help drive the green agenda. The EXTREME Hangout will be located on The Ferry, a unique and well known entertainment venue with a capacity of 600 people and conference capacity of 200, that is permanently moored at Anderston Quay on the Clyde. It is located just a short walk between the Scottish Exhibition Centre, the venue of COP26 and the city centre. The hub will feature a 11-day showcase of live discussion, education and entertainment driven by:
- Panel discussions from opinion formers and leaders in the field, curated by One Young World
- Space to hang out, share ideas, recharge yourself and your devices Leading chefs delivering local food & beverages
