Make Climate an Event

6 - Emmat Ara Khanam Ema.jpg

Make Climate an Event is our extracurricular initiative. Our event models engage students in new ways and spark cross-disciplinary dialogue on climate solutions within your institution.

Interactive events can bring together students, parents, educators, professionals, decisionmakers, activists and other community members in new ways to spark cross-disciplinary dialogue and action.

We invite you to Make Climate an Event. Your team determines the content and format that works best for your learning community. We invite you to explore nearly 1000 examples of events from around the world, content resources, ideas, models and planning tools to enable you to create a meaningful event.​ We can help you to plan your own event.

What does a Climate Event look like? 

Events come in all shapes and sizes! 

You can organize an hour, an evening or a day of activities including book readings, speakers, film screenings, and conservations. We can help you design an event best fit for your community. 

Can it be virtual? How do I find a speaker? 

It can be online or in person!  We will help you to promote your virtual or hybrid events to our global network. 

If you need a speaker check out our Speakers Bureau and we can connect you to an expert!
