WE LAUNCHED AT COP26
At COP26 in Glasgow, the EXTREME Hangout became the leading fringe event for young people giving them a platform, inspiring, engaging and empowering them to see opportunity and to take action. We had incredible partners, over 200 speakers (60+% female and many underrepresented voices on our stage), over 5000 visitors, and we hosted the Climate Champions closing party.
5M VIDEO VIEWS
We put in full camera crews and every day livestreamed incredible content to the world, half a million watched the livestreams and to date 5m have watched the video on demand.
For press and coverage we also had 204 pieces of press, 4.5m coverage views, 247k circulation, with 2.86bn potential online readership reach, and 1.86k social shares.
The inaugural Extreme Hangout was a resounding success. It was accessible, inclusive, authentic and free to access on a repurposed ferry, a gig venue on the River Clyde.
All sessions are available on this site to watch again, please listen to the amazing young people and inspirational speakers.
THE EXTREME HANGOUT IN 2022
Building on that success we are building a media and event programme with three parts.
The EXTREME Hangout Flagship Conference: anchor event, annually at COP, next COP27 in Egypt, then COP28 in Dubai and on.
Ted-X style globally coordinated, locally organised 1-2 day event programme hosted in multiple cities across the world
Monthly, leading to weekly, Vlog/Podcast hosted by young climate leaders engaging with the global influencers and change makers, challenging the status quo and inspiring action
Annually we will ramp up the volume, the EXTREME Hangout will be hosted in new locations and reach greater global audiences. Our big aim is to build to 50 events in 50 locations in 5 years.
We hope you will get involved and join us.
Our next event is at COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, 6-18 November
