How can STEM Women, Entrepreneurs and Youth Address the Global Climate Crisis?
The International Network of Women Engineers & Scientists (INWES) is collaborating with Scottish Engineering and other partners to create a gender-inclusive global conversation about the role of the young in STEM addressing climate change. This hybrid (online, onsite, offline) event is for the young, across countries and cultures. Entrepreneurship provides a way for younger people to lead mitigating actions. We will be taking questions and comments from the young and not so young around the world taking part in the event.

If you could tell decision-makers at COP26 one thing, what would this be?
