National Youth Work Conference 2021: Our Climate Emergency – Youth Work’s Role for People and Planet

A BIG thank you to everyone who attended and helped make this year’s online National Youth Work Conference such a huge success! We have received fantastic feedback on our speakers, presentations and workshops. Although we missed seeing everyone in person last week, the online format again provided an important opportunity to network and connect with the sector.

This year's conference was all about exploring the power of learning for sustainability through youth work. With COP26 only round the corner, this was an absolutely pivotal moment for climate activists in Scotland.

We heard from leading climate activists and environmental experts about the issues that will dominate COP26 and delegates had the opportunity to choose from 17 workshops to hone their skills.
