LCOY in Greece was organised in co-operation with the British Embassy in Athens and WWF Greece, as well as young people from AIESEC in Greece, Ecotivity School, SDSN Youth Greece and The Land Beyond.

The event included workshops, talks and panel discussions with experts, activists and scientists working in the field. The main areas of focus are climate justice, policy, strategy and advocacy on climate and journalism and climate change.

The event is part of the British Council’s global programme around the COP26  climate change conference, which is taking place in Glasgow in November 2021. The British Council is working with partners across the whole of the UK and worldwide to support the success and legacy of COP26 by creating opportunities for co-operation, dialogue and action that address the shared challenges of climate change.
