In 2021 the COP26 Climate Change conference took place in Glasgow, and Oxfam GB worked with our partners to make sure the voices of young people campaigning for climate justice were at the front and centre of delegates’ minds.
Whether it was young campaigners like Jessy and Isaac in Malawi, the schools and community groups who met climate activist Pushpanath Krishnamurthy on his epic walk from London to Glasgow, the young activists from Send My Friend to School or the schools who contributed to the Forest of Promises project seen daily on TV news; we wanted young people to be seen and heard at COP.
Oxfam have also produced resources for schools:
