THE EXTREME HANGOUT AT COP27
Inspired by our love of adventure sports and our passion to protect the planet, we established The Extreme Hangout as a climate action platform giving young people a voice and to drive environmental action.
This year at COP27 The Extreme Hangout operated from a tented Bedouin-style pavilion by the beach overlooking the spectacular Red Sea. We were co-located alongside the New York Times Climate Hub at the Park Regency Hotel, Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. We had over 100 speakers on our stage over 4 days from Nicola Sturgeon and the Prime Minister of The Bahamas to Lily Cole, Paul Poleman and Elizabeth Wathuti.
We delivered 4 days of live discussions, education, networking and entertainment, plus early morning meditation and snorkelling on the reef. The inspiring, empowering and controversial conversations on climate action were live-streamed to our global audience of 20 million fans. Panel discussions from opinion formers and leaders in their fields, were curated by us and our partners, with young people and diverse communities from around the world involved in every conversation.
We always welcome difficult conversations and out of the box thinking, and champion young people and underrepresented voices. As Amber Nuttall, the founder of The EXTREME Hangout, says “We are not going to change the world with the same thinking that got us into this mess.
The EXTREME Hangout represents a coming together and celebration of all those with a shared passion for the healthy recovery of our natural world.
With huge thanks to our partners and supporters
