Coordinated by Global Action Plan and a team of dedicated teachers, the week incuded more than 160 climate-themed sessions, full of inspirational ideas and conversations, for young people from around the world.

Sofia’s Sue Vincent took park part in Careers Conversations, a series of discussions between young people and those working in sectors, like offshore wind, that are helping the environment and reducing the impacts of climate change. The interviews were broadcast daily to give student participants an opportunity to find out what these type of job roles entail.

She was interviewed by Lorenza, one of the Youth Climate Summit Ambassadors, about the role of offshore wind in tackling climate change why it’s such a great career choice for young people.  The interview was shown on Day 3 as one of a number of careers conversations featuring a diverse range of sustainability professionals and is now available on YouTube.

All the sessions from the summit can be viewed online via the Transform our World website.
