Student Climate Change Summit (Goal 12, 13)
Monday 1st - Friday 5th March 2021
Join Newcastle’s first Student Climate Change Summit! Newcastle is a city of knowledge, and of progress, and of action – And so Newcastle City Council, Newcastle University and Northumbria University invite you to join our first Student Climate Change Summit and compete for the first Net Zero Innovation Challenge prizes.
Together we will consider how to tackle the climate emergency and make the most of the huge opportunities it brings, both by changing our communities for the better and seeking to take the lead in efforts to decarbonise the globe.
Key speakers will discuss:
- Newcastle’s Net Zero Action Plan and citywide commitments for action
- How every action helps
- Future careers in the green economy
And students can join the innovation challenge to look at:
- Low carbon campuses
- Low carbon lifestyles
- Low carbon travel
- Working together for a net zero future
Students can sign up to join the Summit on Monday morning, and apply to join the Innovation Challenge which will run through until Friday.
