• Youth engagement in decision-making
• Education & jobs
• Just transition
• Biodiversity
• Energy & renewables
• Travel
• Food
• Rural & islands

There will also be the chance to learn about different climate action projects led by young people and learn about other topics such as green careers and climate activism

The event will run from 9:30am to 5:00pm on Saturday the 30th of October and will be open to all young people in Scotland aged 11 to 25.(You do not need to attend the whole event but you can join in with different sessions that you are interested in)
