The Youth Summit

TV presenter and conservationist Chris Packham CBE will headline a ‘Youth Summit’ with BBC journalist Ngunan Adamu at Knowsley Leisure & Culture Park on 23 and 24 May this year.

The event is part of The Good Business Festival (TGBF) and a highlight of Knowsley’s year as the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture.

Chris and Ngunan will welcome thousands of young people from across the region to discuss their views on key issues like business and climate change. They will also hear from inspiring role models and explore the effect of business on the natural world. Themes and topics will include the environment, food production, oceans and sustainability, human and animal welfare and much more.

The Youth Summit is part of the TGBF education programme and will include a set of special workshops for young people delivered by partners including Dot Art, Metal, UK Youth for Nature, Liverpool World Centre, Incredible Edible, Knowsley Flower Show and the British Antarctic Survey.

Organisers have linked in with primary and secondary schools and colleges across the Liverpool City Region along with Knowsley Youth Parliament and Merseyside Youth Association to maximise young people’s access and participation and give them free access to the Summit.
