Extreme Hangout
PR & Marketing Intern


Extreme Hangout PR & Marketing Intern

Extreme Media part of Extreme International

Inspired by our love of adventure sports and our passion to protect the planet, EXTREME established The Extreme Hangout in 2021 as a sustainability impact platform to give young people a voice, popularise the climate movement and inspire environmental action. Young and underrepresented people want their voices heard and have little opportunity to participate in formal proceedings. EXTREME made it its mission to give them a seat at the table and deliver a platform where they could share their concerns and opinions. 


The Extreme Hangout was launched at COP26 in Glasgow and became a leading fringe event. We took over a repurposed ferry on the River Clyde, close to the main action, where we ran an 11-day youth conference and hub. We had 200 incredible speakers from Bear Grylls to Lily Cole, 6000 visitors and 5 million video impressions.


The EXTREME Hangout will run again at COP28 in Dubai from the 1st to the 10th of December 2023.Again, it will be open to all and free to join us for the dynamic and inspirational youth-led change maker talks and panels, networking, and for those who will be attending COP28 to use The Extreme Hangout as their base to re-charge, recoup and hangout.

We are also building the EXTREME Hangout global series, rolling it out with local partners to 100 locations around the world.
