Extreme Hangout and Rove Hotels Bring the World’s Youth to COP28

The most powerful weapon for change is the voice of our youth. They speak with the passion, determination and integrity needed to forge positive change across the globe.

The Extreme Hangout offers them the space they need at COP28 to share their opinion and ideas, but also to learn from, and engage with, the experienced storytellers and changemakers, the thought leaders and decision-makers, and the global ambassadors of extreme and adventure sports and travel, participating in our 10-day climate impact programme.

Young people travelling from all over the world will join us at The Extreme Hangout pavilion in the Green Zone of Al Forsan Park from the 3rd-12th December. Helming from NGOs such as the Centre for Global Education, The African Youth Activists, One Young World, GAYO – African Climate Innovators, Local Conference of Youth, Sacred Headwaters Initiatives, Climate 2025 and The Youth Leaders. Already moving mountains in their respective communities and countries, for a week they will take to our stage to amplify the voices of the youth and underrepresented communities in the global climate conversation and help us to inspire climate action.

Their presence in Dubai would not have been possible without the generous support of The Extreme Hangout’s official hotel partner, Rove Hotels. Without hesitation, they stepped in to provide over 1,000 discounted hotel room nights across their 9 properties in the emirate. The idea of being involved with the COP28 community and the youth voice resonated with Rove Hotels’ target audience and strategy.

Paul Bridger, COO of Rove Hotels said: “We are thrilled to partner with Extreme Hangout to make COP28 more accessible to youth groups. As a brand, Rove is committed to fostering sustainability and community, and it’s for that reason that we are excited about providing opportunities for the leaders of tomorrow to engage in the critical climate discussions taking place.”

"Our philosophy is to engage and inspire young people, popularise the climate conversation, infuse it with hope and opportunity, through diverse, intergenerational, inter-community conversations, showing that together we can build the 2050 of our dreams; not our nightmares. Our role at the Extreme Hangout is an honour. We get to champion the true champions. We are grateful for Rove Hotel’s support in making this a reality.” shared Amber Nuttall, Extreme Hangout Founder and Creative Director.
