The Global Water Gap: Broadening clean water access through microfinance
Access to clean water remains a major challenge for policy makers - 1 in 9 remain without clean water in their homes. In order to meet the water demands of a growing global population and the climate crisis, innovative solutions are needed, including new technologies and microfinance loans. Join us to hear about the critical work being done to secure greater access to clean water, and the challenge ahead in the context of the climate crisis.

Moon Symphony - How cosmic perspectives can inspire our role as crewmates here on Spaceship Earth
Through the enlightened experiences of astronauts, and the power of a symphony, ISS Astronaut Nicole Stott, and composer Amanda Lee Falkenberg will take audiences on an immersive journey to the outer solar system. In seven movements, Falkenberg’s composition THE MOONS SYMPHONY® transports to moons of our outer solar system to experience their fascinating worlds to then be brought back to Earth with fresh lens to contemplate “who and where we are in this place”. As astronaut and composer, Stott and Falkenberg are on a planetary campaign to spread the awe and wonder of Space - amplified through the powerful forces of Music and through a celebration of our precious planetary home, they deliver an emotive message that inspires a call to action for the crew of Spaceship Earth.

Hate something? Change something: Creating the future we want
Have you wanted to change something but don’t know where to start? Hear how young leaders from around the world have approached issues in their communities and have created solutions that work. From fighting climate change with technology, to transitioning an industry to solar power, to advancing sustainable construction and development – these leaders were in your shoes and have taken that critical first step. We will all need to take action in our communities to create the future we want.

Words are pretty (blablabla)
In this two hour workshop - run by and for youth climate activists - we’ll contrast the ‘pretty words’ that world leaders have pledged in the first few days of COP26, with the tangible actions that are required to keep global temperatures below 1.5 degrees.
Participants will work together to co-create solutions for addressing the climate crisis, and will work with live illustrators to translate them into artwork. We’ll display the results of the workshop in the Extreme Hangout throughout the rest of COP26, as a reminder that words are pretty (bla bla bla), but it is action that creates change.
21:30 - 22:15
