Québec City, September 19, 2019 – Student leaders from around the world are expected to attend the first International University Student Summit on Climate Action in summer 2020 at the Université Laval campus in Québec City, Canada.
The Québec government, Québec City, Université Laval, and other forthcoming partners will provide $700,000 in funding for the summit, which will bring together postsecondary students from around the world to discuss climate change. During a week of workshops and discussions, these future leaders will be encouraged to take action on climate change by joining influential decision makers and scientists in the search for concrete and creative solutions.
The summit will provide an opportunity for some 300 young leaders to discuss common values and approaches to climate change and engage in an international dialogue on the issue. In addition to sharing approaches, possible solutions, and actions, they will also form international research partnerships to bring their ideas to life.
