ICN Schools Summit

It was my great pleasure to attend the InterClimate network (ICN) National Summit, on the 27 June. And it is great that the RCCP have been able to contribute towards the work of ICN, and helped to support the event.

The day itself was fantastic…it did help that it was held at Portcullis House, and was attended by MPs, which gave it a real feeling of importance. There were schools in attendance from across the country, sharing ideas and inspiration. There was a brilliant energy in the room.

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both for giving us the opportunity to attend the conference today. It was very well organised and our students were really inspired by your guest speakers and the students from the other schools, as were we, as teachers. The students already have plenty of  ideas to take back to Little Heath and are already planning to meet the head to kick start some campaigns. 

As a school we already look at food insecurity and actively support our local food bank, as well as looking at ways in which we can save water. We now have fresh ideas for plastics and energy efficiency in the school and look forward to making more changes and educating our students.”

Link to: How does it make you feel…?

Microsite I've set up to share songs, and meanings, for the ‘How does it make you feel…?’ event, which will be online at 7pm on Saturday 14 November. And part of the Reading Climate Festival 2020. It promises to be an interesting and heartfelt conversation so we really hope you can join us on the night.

It was great to be able to share some of the things we are planning to do in our new Reading Climate Emergency Strategy last night. Many thanks to Michael Bright, and all at Reading Town Meal, for organising the event and for keeping things going despite the Covid restrictions.
