Wednesday 3 July 2019 (All day)

Name of Event: Changing the Debate: Schools Climate Conference 

Volunteer Role: Assistant 

The conference, held at UCL, is designed to allow young people to change the debate in their schools and local communities. Green Schools Project, School 21, and WE will bring together 200 young people aged 9-17 from 10 schools, academics, climate scientists and politicians to discuss what is required from the education sector to respond to the climate crisis.

We are looking for students to assist with the running and organisation of the day. This will involve directing children and young people around the conference, providing refreshments and helping to set up beforehand and clear away afterwards.

As a volunteer at our conference, you will be contributing to fuelling the motivation of young people to address the climate crisis. You will also have the opportunity to sit in on lectures by leading climate scientists, experts and politicians.

The day will be energising and a great way to develop your schools. Photographs taken will be displayed on our website and on social media.

When: Wednesday 3 July 2019, from 09:30 – 16:00

Where: UCL, Christopher Ingold Building, 20 Gordon Street, London, WC1H 0AJ
