We, the next generation of global leaders, aim to show that we are united, persistent and resilient.

Greta Thunberg demanded climate change action at the United Nations when she was 16. Autumn Peltier has been fighting for water conservatism since she was 12. Lilly Platt started her litter-picking campaign when she was 7.

Young people are demanding change. And now it’s your turn. By attending the Green Summit, you will realise the important role that YOU play by taking responsibility for your future.

Over four intensive days, delegates will have the opportunity to learn from world-leading experts in sustainable development and participate in green workshops, tackling key issues, such as plastic reduction, ocean conservation and leading a Climate Initiative.

Delegates will spend a day in sustainable activities from River Cleaning to Marine and Coastal Conservation. Delegates will also have a unique opportunity to network with like-minded individuals from around the world in the advancement of a greener, more sustainable planet.

Delegates will emerge from the summit equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to become a Humanitarian Affairs Green Ambassador and inspire other young people around the world to take action

Young people are demanding a voice in the fight to protect the future of their world. Are you ready to make your voice heard?

It is important for young people from around the world to come together at the Green Summit because it gives us a chance to get involved in climate issues and help protect our future. Despite the younger generations being the most affected by climate change, young voices often lack enough opportunity to instigate real change regardless of our motivations to do so.

However, Humanitarian Affairs Asia is giving us this much-needed opportunity to help materialise our motivations by placing young people at the forefront of the Green Summit and allowing us to be heard and make a difference.

The planned day of sustainable activities during the summit is particularly key as we will be engaging with the local community – and making tangible efforts to protect the local environment – whilst keeping a global aspect as young people from across the world come together for a single cause. The influence of such a global event will also have a local impact when delegates return to their homes with newfound means and motivations to take action in their local communities.
