About Extreme Hangout at COP26

This floating, youth-focused, climate change conference and entertainment hub, has been created by EXTREME International in partnership with One Young World as a space to give the younger generation a platform for their voices to be heard. Delegates and guests at THE EXTREME HANGOUT, Powered by OVO, will be unafraid to have the hard conversations, tackle the big issues, buck the status quo, and pledge tangible solutions and actions to tackle climate change.

Every day we will cover a key topic through  four, hour long panel discussions from some of the world’s leading organisations and inspiring individuals; experts, activists, agitators, celebrities, artists, musicians – who are all committed to the climate action agenda.
Highlights include:
A climate Justice panel chaired by Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy with prominent young activists Dr Mya-Rose Craig, Noga Levy Rapoport and Joycelyn Longdon discussing the intersectionality of sustainability with class, gender, race and how those least responsible for the problems are most likely to bear the brunt of the negative effects of the climate crisis.
#PromiseToThePlanet, from a promise to a plan with Bear Grylls, Adventurer and World Scouting Chief Ambassador and a panel of inspiring young leaders on how making an individual promise to combat the climate crisis as well as working in groups and engaging decision makers can lead to a meaningful change.
Food for thought; Rethinking the global food system in the age of the climate crisis. Chaired by Abhinav Khanal, Co-Founder & Executive Director at Bean Voyage, a non-profit social enterprise that provides training and market access to smallholder women coffee producers in Costa Rica. Panellists include social sustainability and environmental advocate Arizona Muse and Co-Founder of Too Good To Go Founder Jammie Crummie.

• Amber Nuttall – environmental activist
• AY Young – Artist, entrepreneur, sustainability activist
