THE EXTREME HANGOUT COP26, GLASGOW
Inspired by our love of adventure sports and our passion to protect the planet, EXTREME made it its mission to give the youth a voice at COP26 and beyond.
The EXTREME Hangout at COP26, https://www.extremehangoutevents.com/ was an 11 day youth conference and dynamic hub. With amazing partners, we did just that. The EXTREME Hangout hosted 200 speakers over 56 sessions all livestreamed out to a global audience. The livestream had 550,000 views with 5m impressions and delivered over 200 pieces of global press coverage. The content and level of debate and discussion was superb.
All sessions are available on our website to watch again, please listen to the amazing young people and inspirational speakers. Our 27 partners ranged from OVO Energy and One Young World, to Vivobarefoot, Nestle, Violife, Blue Marine Foundation, Think Beyond, Foresight, Zero Carbon Campaign, YMCA, the Climate Champions and many many more. We gave young people a seat at the table and heard them innovate, engage, inspire, rage and drive others on to do more. The Extreme Hangout became a welcome hub for many, full of rich content, warmth and great tea and coffee. We will continue to give youth a voice. Join us at the next EXTREME Hangout. We would love to have a conversation with you to discuss what we might do together.

WHAT IS COP26?
For the past 26 years the United Nations has brought together almost every country on earth for global climate summits, called COPs (Conference of the Parties). In the time since the first ever COP in Berlin in 1995, climate change has transformed from being a fringe issue to a global crisis.
This year, the 26th COP will be held in Glasgow from 1st – 12th November 2021. With an expected attendance of over 30,000, COP26 will be the most significant climate event since the 2015 Paris Agreement and is set to drive vital and urgent action for the future of our planet.
COP26 will be “the world’s best last chance to get runaway climate change under control” – United Nations
