Polar Net Zero – COP26

This interactive event challenges young people around the globe to think about the part they can play in creating a low carbon future.

By questioning world-leading experts who are developing sustainable solutions to reduce energy use at British Antarctic Survey research stations school children will learn how human ingenuity, creativity, and technology can help people live with and adapt to climate change. Its key message to students is ‘you can help ensure a greener, more resilient future for us all’.
