You can also ask a question live at the event – register for the event and select the ‘I’d like to ask a question’ option.
Climate breakdown is a threat to all of us, and the people who will be forced to live with the worst effects are the young. But young people’s voices are often overlooked.
The summit is an online event for Oxford’s young people to be a part of the discussion about how the city tackles the climate emergency. The outcomes of the event will feed directly into our climate strategy.
It is also an opportunity for young people to hear about climate breakdown from some of the world’s leading experts and learn what they can do about it from some of the city’s most prominent figures.
The event will feature discussions lead by
* Linnet Drury and other climate campaigners with Oxford Youth Strike
* Anneliese Dodds, MP for Oxford East and shadow chancellor of the Exchequer
* Nick Eyre, professor of energy and climate policy at the Environmental Change Institute, chief scientific adviser to Oxford City Council
* Cllr Tom Hayes, Oxford City Council deputy leader and cabinet member for zero carbon Oxford
If you’re aged 19 or under and live or study in Oxford, whether you’re an experienced campaigner or just interested and want to make a difference, we want you to be part of this conversation.
