What if I have no leadership experience or knowledge about climate change?
That’s fine! We will have a range of students, all with different levels of understanding and skill levels. We’re making sure our program is inclusive of everyone and the conference will be a great experience for any skill or understanding level.
Can my organisation run a stall at the conference?
Yes! We’re working hard to help match up passionate students with organisations that are aiming to make the world a more sustainable place. Having a stall at the Climate Challenge Conference is a great way to build one-on-one engagement with high school students from around the country. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
