The climate emergency has inspired youth-led activism across the world and young people have been at the forefront of campaigns and political protest on climate justice.

In April 2019, Extinction Rebellion began to galvanise support in the UK, before turning into a global movement, denouncing inaction and inertia on the part of governments and the powerful. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the limitations of inaction in the face of global threats.

This four-part virtual conference series explores how young people think about environmentalism, stewardship of the natural world, grassroots activism, and the limitations or possibilities of representative democracy and international collaboration with regard to the future of the planet.

They will discuss the challenges and opportunities of transnational political action, and examine how young people imagine a future in which humanity’s impact on the planet will be less destructive.
