Youth Climate Summit offers 150 online school sessions

A range of primary school sessions covering everything from pollution and oceans to farming and fashion are taking place as part of the Youth Climate Summit 2020.

The event is being co-ordinated by environmental charity Global Action Plan and takes place from Monday to Friday, November 9 to 13.

The summit is taking place entirely online via the charity’s Transform Our World teacher resource hub.

Schools will be making pledges every day throughout the summit, with one of the main calls to action for schools being to join the Let’s Go Zero campaign, which unites schools working to become zero carbon by 2030 and calls for government backing for this agenda.

Let’s Go Zero is organised by Ashden, a climate charity which has long worked with schools to help them lower their energy use and cut carbon emissions.
