THE BACKSTORY

Inspired by a love of adventure sports, the natural world, and our passion to protect the planet, Amber Nuttall and Alistair Gosling supported by EXTREME International established The Extreme Hangout in 2020.

 

We made a spectacular debut at COP26 in Glasgow, quickly establishing ourselves as a prominent fringe event. Located aboard a repurposed ferry on the River Clyde, near the main proceedings, we hosted an extensive 11-day youth conference and hub.

 

Our impressive line-up featured 200 renowned speakers, including the likes of Bear Grylls and Lily Cole, attracting 6,000 enthusiastic visitors and generating an astounding 5 million video impressions.

 

We delivered alongside The New York Times at COP27 in Egypt and then, in recognition of our growing movement and community, the United Nations organising committee invited us to join them and deliver Extreme Hangout in the official COP28 Green Zone at Expo City, Dubai in 2023 where we had 20,000 visitors, 550 speakers join us for ten days of inspiring talks, experiences, and hangout with us.

 

In 2023 we also launched our Extreme Hangout local action series which are run in partnership with and by local climate actionists, Ted X event organisers, local mayors and tourism offices all over the world and there have been 17 Extreme Hangout locals with over 30 in the pipeline.

EXTREME HANGOUT AT COP29 AZERBAIJAN 2024

The EXTREME Hangout will run again at COP29 in Azerbaijan, with session dates and times to be confirmed.

 

As in previous years, it will be open to all, there is no cost to join us for the dynamic and inspirational youth-led change maker talks and panels, networking, and its free for anyone attending COP29 to use as their base to re-charge, recoup and hangout.

WHAT IS COP?

For the past 27 years the United Nations has brought together almost every country on earth for global climate summits, called COPs (Conference of the Parties). In the time since the first ever COP in Berlin in 1995, climate change has transformed from being a fringe issue to a global crisis.

The 29th COP will be hosted by Azerbaijan in Baku. With an expected attendance of over 80,000 delegates, including 140 heads of state and government and over 5000 media professionals, COP29 carries high expectations to drive vital and urgent action for the future of our planet.
