We are facing our biggest ever global challenge with climate change; the consequences of which are already widespread and intensifying. We need more young people to be empowered as proactive campaigners, researchers, and innovators to help with the problems we now face. There is no more time to delay! Join the discussion with a panel of academics and students from the University of Warwick as we explore the importance of youth engagement in climate action, including an interactive discussion of the objectives, drivers, and outcomes of a student-led simulation of the COP26 Climate Conference, in light of the actual COP26 outputs.
