THE EXTREME HANGOUT
Launched in 2021, The EXTREME Hangout became a leading fringe event at COP26, in Glasgow and again at COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt in 2022. With amazing partners, we hosted dynamic and inspirational youth-led talks and panels, networking events and more. All our sessions were livestreamed out to a global audience and remain available on our Live Catch-Up page to be watched again.
Building on the success of these events and working through sport we are rolling out an ambitious programme with the goal to deliver 50 impact events in 50 locations over the next 5 years. The annual Extreme Hangout programme is part of an engagement plan to drive climate action through 3 areas:
The Extreme Hangout at COP - Our major annual event will be held at COP every year, live-streamed globally.
The global event series, run in city, beach and mountain locations around the world in partnership with local young climate activists, local Ted X event organisers, with the objective to connect, engage and amplify local voices and drive local action.
Our video and voice podcast series for year-round engagement and available on multiple platforms.
With The EXTREME Hangout, we want to engage and inspire young people, harness the power of sport, work collaboratively with amazing partners who are thinking outside the box and amplify the volume of any one doing climate action work.
