Tuesday 28 May 2024, 4–5pm

For many young people, climate change is a major concern. They find themselves reacting with anger, despair and feelings of hopelessness as those in power continue with ‘business as usual’.

As such, young people are leading on climate action in different and innovative ways. 

This workshop will focus on different leadership approaches in the climate movement. 

We'll consider how we can model leadership that results in more peaceful, sustainable and equitable communities, from local to global.
