The Scottish Youth Climate Summit will bring together a diverse range of young people, aged 11 – 26, to discuss their priorities for climate action in Scotland. Working alongside a range of climate experts and activists, participants will create a national youth declaration on climate change, highlighting the most pressing issues for children and young people and setting out their demands to the Scottish Government and international decision-makers.

Topics will include:

  • Children’s rights
  • Youth engagement (in decision-making)
  • Education & jobs
  • Just transition
  • Biodiversity
  • Energy & renewables
  • Travel
  • Food
  • Rural & islands

Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about leading climate action projects led by young people and learn about topics such as energy security, green careers, and climate activism. The online event will culminate with participants creating a film of their demands: the digital declaration.
