Join us on Saturday, February 4th, 2023 from 10 AM - 1  PM New York Time for the first ever Worldwide Youth Climate Summit organized by Bard College and the Open Society University Network through the Worldwide Teach-in on Climate and Justice!

During this powerful three-hour digital summit, hundreds of students and young people from around the world will convene as part of the global movement for climate justice and solutions. Attendees will build their activist networks by connecting with each other during small regional breakout sessions where they will hear each other’s climate stories and discuss the work that lies ahead. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend an organizing skills-building workshop and gain skills to help empower their climate advocacy. Finally, attendees will learn about the Worldwide Teach-in on Climate and Justice and how they can activate their institution and community in the fight for climate justice.

This digital summit is a rare opportunity for a truly global community of youth climate activists to meet each other, network and build collective power. We hope you can join us and register here!
