Cumbria Youth Climate Summit – The second, annual, gathering of young climate activists from schools across Cumbria, with inspirational speakers.
Wednesday 22 April 2020 – 12.00-15.00 BST. At Carlisle Racecourse, Durdar Rd. Carlisle CA2 4TS
Following the success of last year’s youth climate summit which helped establish a network of schools and students engaging in supported, climate activism, this year’s event will take us to the next level as the urgency of climate action heats up!
Greta Thunberg and youth campaigners around the world have jolted the world into realisation. We now have to pick up the baton and jolt the world into action. The people with the authority to make the changes needed will continue to think that using a reusable coffee cup or a different type of soap is doing enough until they are confronted with a young person with a real stake in this planet’s future. Schools can either help or hinder young people’s efforts. This event is for those schools which have chosen to help.
