The aim is to strengthen collaborations among youth, higher education leaders and decision-makers to embed climate education in higher education institutions.
Youth leaders presented their manifesto for climate education, endorsed by multiple international youth organisations, and stories of successful collaboration with policymakers. This was followed by reactions from national commissions and a discussion on ways to strengthen collaborations around the demands of youth.
