Virtual climate Summit
Save the date 9-10 Sept
For everyone, everywhere
Climate change affects everyone, everywhere. Therefore, we will hold a summit where no country or person is excluded. This will be a summit with no flights. We will accommodate all time zones, it will run for 30 consecutive hours, so no one will miss out.
Most of all, we want to recreate the feel of a real in-person summit. A summit is not just about listening, but connecting and building new ideas and initiatives, and you will be able to do just that.
The summit will feature:
- Plenaries from high level speakers on climate change;
- Interactive Panel Discussions and workshops;
- Coffee Chats – meet random people in the coffee room and exchange ideas and digital business cards;
- Co-creation sessions – work in small workshops with other National Societies or teams to build new initiatives, or if you are a Branch join the ‘Branches Connect’ sessions to be virtually linked to other branches around the world to explore new projects;
- Virtual Tours – National Societies and partners can host a virtual tour of their climate related projects for summit participants;
- Innovation Pitch Tent – staff, volunteers and young people from National Societies will be able to submit innovative project ideas for climate initiatives. Finalists will be invited to pitch their ideas at a special pitch tent at the summit where judges and audiences will vote for the winning projects. Winners will receive grant funding to help implement their projects;● Games – there will be some fun digital games to participate in before and during the summit.
Strategy 2030 and The Movement Ambitions to Address the Climate Crisis sets out our collective vision on how we intend to meet the challenge. Now we need to translate that vision into action.
