Climate Action:
Race to Zero

Welcome to Speak Out! An opportunity for young people (aged 25 & under) across the world to share their thoughts, opinions and solutions on climate change by writing and delivering a speech.


Come back soon to hear speeches about climate change from young people all over the world - in the meantime, get inspired from some speeches from our other programmes about the Environment


This programme gives young people a voice and amplifies unheard stories to bring communities together, shining a light on revolutionary ideas to halt the damage of climate change.

This is your opportunity to perfect your public speaking skills and have the opportunity to share your perspective on climate change with the world, by writing and delivering a speech.

Start by taking part in our online training, then upload your speech for the world to see - we will be selecting a handful of speeches to be delivered at a live event in October 2021.

We are a part of Climate Action: Race to Zero, an international collaboration to mobilise the creativity and energy of young people to address climate change. For further information on the programme, awards, challenges, events and other activities click here

Climate Action: Race to Zero actively promotes the Count Us In campaign to mobilise 1 billion people for positive action on climate change. Join the movement, find out what you can do. Click here


Do you have a message about climate change you think the world should hear? Do you feel passionately about the planet, but not sure how to convince others to take action? This is your opportunity to Speak Up for the Planet.
