HOST A LOCAL EXTREME HANGOUT
Giving voice to local changemakers. Bringing light, action and optimism into the debate. And shaking up the climate conversation
The EXTREME Hangout’s vision is to help shift the climate dial. We hold an anchor event each year at COP, a voice and video series to keep the conversation alive year-round and are launching an ambitious plan for 50 local EXTREME Hangouts in 50 locations in the next 5 years. We engage new voices, highlight local solutions and amplify the volume. Join us!
A local EXTREME Hangout is a one-day climate action event anywhere in the world. Hosted by young changemakers in your local area, working with local organisations, influencers, pioneers, innovating companies and local government, they are designed to shake up the climate conversation, give voice to local changemakers and we distribute the livestreams and video content through the media young people consume.
The EXTREME Hangout was launched at COP26 in Glasgow where we hosted an 11-day conference of young changemakers. We took it again to COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh where we hosted a 4-day conference of changemakers. COP has been going for 27 years now, and “Insanity is the doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”, so it is time to shake things up a bit.
By shaking up the climate conversation we want to popularise the climate movement, inspire each other and young people around the world. There is power in all of us, in our choices and how we use our voice. We give young changemakers a voice, bring light to the debate and hold leaders to account. Will you join us and host a local Extreme Hangout?
The EXTREME Hangout team provide a suggested format and ethos, media platforms for local changemakers to utilise, production assistance and marketing support, overarching themes and seed funding.
EXTREME Hangout global sponsors are PwC and Extreme International. Our networks include strategic partners like C40 but also the many global NGOs and activist organisations around the world that we have been working with over a number of years.
