WildHearts Global Youth Summit

The world’s largest, free, youth-led, climate event

During the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) our Summit is giving young people across the UK and globally a voice and empowering them to tackle climate change.

There is still time to get your students involved and provide them with opportunities to learn, collaborate and innovate through interactive assemblies, lesson plans and workshops so they can become changemakers in their school and community.

Schools, Parents and Carers participating in The WildHearts Global Youth Summit will help young people to:

  • Develop their climate literacy skills.
  • Receive practical advice on how they can take action from global thought leaders on climate change.
  • Gain an insight into what leading global brands are currently doing to address climate change.
  • Have the opportunity to inspire and learn from other young people across the world.

The learning resources are available until 30th November and include:

By undertaking these lesson plans, your school will also be awarded the Sustainable Leaders Award for introducing students to sustainability in its broadest context – environmental, social and economic.

Students will also have the opportunity to learn from young people across the world on how they are tackling climate change in their school community.

Closing Ceremony

This interactive event is a call to action. It will focus on creating a legacy movement for the Summit and COP26 whilst equipping young people with the Inspiration, Knowledge and Networks to become change makers in their community.

After the event, young people individually or in teams, will be challenged to create a 90-second video pitch outlining their solution to address a pressing environmental issue in their school or community. Prizes will be awarded for the top ideas.
