October is an important month for climate action as we prepare for this year’s UN climate conference in Glasgow, COP26. This conference will bring together government officials, NGOs, and other decision makers to discuss issues relating to the climate crisis and the measures each government will take to reduce their emissions and prevent further warming and climate damage.

To get ready for COP26, we’re hosting a series of workshops to bring young people who are passionate about the environment together. Through these workshops, you’ll learn about climate change, climate justice and how we can take action.

This is also a chance to connect with other young people in Ireland who care about the planet. The climate crisis can be overwhelming, but one of the best ways to deal with climate anxiety is by coming together with like-minded people to explore solutions and demand change.

These workshops will take place online and are open to young people in Ireland aged 16-25. The workshops are free of charge.
