Calling all Cumbrian schools! The Cumbria Youth Climate Action Summit is being held online on Friday October 15 2021, from 9:30am – 12 midday. We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes getting together a great programme, with a steering group made up of young people in Cumbria helping us plan workshops that will help inform and empower your students.

These workshops cover a range of topics which you can choose from, from getting your voice heard and COP26, to making your school carbon zero, to what opportunities there are in the Fellfoot area.

The event will be held remotely this year via Zoom.

The aim of this summit is to build on the amazing environmental and climate actions young people are already taking in Cumbria, so that young people are at the heart of making Cumbria Zero Carbon by 2037. This will also involve support from the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership after the summit, for students who wish to take part in climate projects at their schools.

If you would like your students to attend, please fill in the form here you’ll be able to choose which workshops you’d like to attend and we’ll send you more details of the event shortly.
