Inspired by our love of adventure sports and our passion to protect the planet, EXTREME has made it it’s mission to give the youth a voice at COP26 and beyond. 

From 1st to 11th November 2021, The EXTREME Hangout at COP26 will be an exciting youth-focused hub and event activation in Glasgow. A platform for active participation and a space for inspiration, engagement, education, and entertainment, the Extreme Hangout will represent a coming together and celebration of all those who share a passion for the healthy recovery of our natural world.


EXTREME is an adventure sport brand driving positive change through extreme and adventure sport. We are passionate about the planet, the environment and sustainability and our young audience believes the same. With little being done, we stepped in to activate this and welcome your support to bring it to life and reach its full potential. 


We are hosting 12 days of panel discussion from opinion leaders led by our content partner One Young World  https://www.oneyoungworld.com/.  Evenings will be full of entertainment. This will be a place to be at COP26.


The message and debate will be carried from the EXTREME Hangout to a global audience. Through our own social media channels we have a growing audience of 20m fans, with 150m video views per month, and with our partner channels too we will be working to drive exposure and engagement.  We have global reach and a young audience that want to be engaged on this. In the venue each session can seat 150 and we have 4 sessions per day plus hangout space.  We will have around 1000 people through the venue during the day, and in the evening around 500.
