Youth Summit 2020, Nower Wood Educational Nature Reserve, Thursday, 26. March 2020

2020 marks five years since the Paris Climate Agreement, when the UN countries will review their progress towards these crucial targets. Young people are demanding a greener, sustainable future which prioritises the environment and acknowledges the intrinsic links between nature and climate. Momentum for action is building – will you be part of this change?
On the 26th March 2020 at Nower Wood Education Centre, near Leatherhead, we will be hosting our annual Youth Summit -a chance for 16-18 year olds to come together and stand up for nature. We want your thoughts, ideas and opinions on current environmental matters and what we can all do to make a real difference. There will be inspirational keynote speakers, hands-on workshops and an open forum to discuss and debate with fellow students. You will learn lobbying and promotional skills, improve your knowledge of our native species and at the same time be part of something that could enhance your UCAS applications and CVs. By the end of the day, we will pledge to take action for Surrey's nature and the future of the planet.

How many students can I bring?
Maximum 6 students and 1/2 staff per school.

What is the cost?
This event is free, but booking is essential via this Eventbrite page. It is intended to enrich the learning of 6th form students and engage them with environmental issues.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is no direct public transport to the site and there is limited parking at Nower Wood, so we are encouraging car sharing where possible. Ideally, each school can fit their attending staff and students into one car and not need to bring a minibus, which would take up additional parking space. Alternatively, parents may be able to drop off students on the morning.
If public transport is the only option available to you, the best solution is to take a taxi from Leatherhead station, which is only a 5 minute car journey.
What should I bring to the event?
You need to bring suitable outdoor footwear and clothing, somerthing to write on and a smart device (tablet or phone, for example) to be able to fully participate in the workshops. A hot lunch is provided, as well as refreshments thoughtout the day.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
