COP26 Youth Hub

Orgaisers at the Youth Hub believe that COP26 has the potential to be about so much more than the official negotiations taking place at the SSE Hydro. They want COP to be an opportunity for young people to get together and learn, socialise and organise, all while using the momentum from COP to spur future action on the climate emergency.

The COP26 Youth Hub will be a space for workshops and skill sharing, but also for rest and relaxation during a time when climate burnout, fatigue and anxiety are likely to be rife.

The full line-up is still to be released, but attendees can expect workshops on campaign skills, climate change and mental health, jargon busting and more. These events will be run partly by the host organisations, Glasgow University Environmental Sustainability Team (GUEST), Young Friends of the Earth Scotland (YFOES), the UK Youth Climate Coalition (UKYCC), The Resilience Project, and partly by guest speakers. They will also be running a full roster of online events for activists across the world. Some of these will be workshops, and others will be social events.
