Beyond Cop21 Symposium Eton College

on

On Thursday 10 February 2022 The Abbey was lucky enough to be invited to take a small group of Upper IV, Lower V and Lower VI students to the Beyond Cop21 Symposium at Eton College. 

During the course of the day students listened to a number of inspirational presentations by Peter Milne, founder of Target 4 Green and Beyond Cop21 Symposium, Tara Golshan, Director Of Education for the Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Foundation and Aliza Ayaz, UN Goodwill Ambassador /Chairperson at CAS (Climate Action Society). 

Along with taking part in workshops run by the organisation Ocean Generation and Design Nature CIC, students also had the opportunity to visit an exhibition to find out about a number of environmental organisations such as Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Wild Maidenhead, Reading Hydro, Whale and Dolphin Conservation. 

The day was really thought-provoking and allowed students to learn more about environmental issues and have the opportunity to discuss and think about how everyone can play their part when tackling climate change.
