More About | EXTREME HANGOUT

 

Inspired by our love of adventure sports and our passion to protect the planet, EXTREME established The Extreme Hangout in 2021 as a sustainability impact platform to give young people a voice, popularise the climate movement and inspire environmental action. Young and underrepresented people want their voices heard and have little opportunity to participate in formal proceedings. EXTREME made it its mission to give them a seat at the table and deliver a platform where they could share their concerns and opinions.
