On the 20th of October 2022, over 1400 students and over 45 schools from across the country met at King Edward VII School for the second-ever Schools Climate Assembly. Chris Packham’s passionate words fell upon young ears as he tip-toed the fine line between the harsh reality of global rising temperatures and the hope and determination that young people must share in order to fight it.
Edward VII Students Take Climate Demands To The Heart of Government Their visit to Downing Street coincided with the start of the COP 27 conference in Egypt. This means that they had a unique opportunity to make real change, and possibly influence the talks and decisions of world leaders at COP 27; a chance for young people to make an impact on a global scale.
