It’s Time for Change: Youth Climate Action Hack

  • 17 Nov 2020
  • General

Connect with young people from around the world who are passionate about climate action and contribute to an ambitious new citizen-led climate campaign.


As young people continue to lead the way in raising the ambition for climate action globally, we bring to you an event that gives you a chance to create, develop, suggest and showcase ideas with people who share your passion for climate action. Designed and led by a global committee of young people, this interactive Youth Climate ‘Hack’ will help you connect with like-minded activists from all over the world.

We will invite you to come up with ways that young people can support and engage with Count Us In, a new ambitious citizen-led campaign to help mitigate climate change globally. You’ll help design a youth-led action as part of driving pledges to the campaign and can get involved in the action after the event. Register here to join!

What is a hack?

A ‘hack’ is a fast paced and fun approach to come up with new ideas and solutions to challenges. It brings together people from different backgrounds and experiences to tackle a problem and work together, at speed, to design new ideas. With this event you’ll be developing a youth-led climate action for the global Count Us In campaign!

Who can join?

The Hack is an interactive and fun event designed by young people for young people to connect with each other and share ideas from their perspectives and parts of the world. We are an inter-generational movement and welcome people of all ages and identities.

How will it work?

The hack is a virtual meetup that will be hosted using the conference calling software called Zoom. Our hosts will welcome everyone to the call, introduce the event and then split everyone up into moderated break out rooms to discuss and brainstorm ideas. Further information and details will be shared in advance of the event.

How do I join?

You can join for free by registering here on Eventbrite. A zoom meeting link will then be sent to all registered attendees prior to the event. When you click the link, you will be directed to the zoom call to join the conversation from wherever you are in the world.

We encourage those with slow internet speed to click through to the meeting link ahead of the call to allow extra time for any difficulties joining.


This event is being designed and led by a volunteer committee of young people on behalf of Restless Development.
