I jumped at the chance to work together with After the Pandemic to provide a platform for young people to have a voice in and around COP26.
Working with ATP to agree topics I then set off to develop the ‘Together we have one voice’ series.
The four events saw students from the north east of England and Scotland get together like never before for this exciting project. Current students and former students from 8 separate schools, colleges and universities took part.
Many of them have since gone onto further collaborations and STEM work proving that we can all inspire each other 🙂
Challenging the current systems is what we need to do to accelerate change. We discussed education with students from a variety of establishments if they thought their education would help towards a greener future.
