I have this morning done my first climate change assembly for half of Sidmouth College – the other half is tomorrow – and I have put my powerpoint slides up at Climate Change presentation
The students were really quiet – not sure if that’s because they were listening intently, were shell shocked at how fast I went through it (I only had 15 minutes), or if they are sick and tired of hearing climate doom and zoned out. Mrs Parsons, the head, is very enthusiastic about getting everyone engaged in what is happening, keen to avoid a mass walk out understandably, and wants to have conversations with them about how they can best make changes and show support. It is very encouraging. Now we can get some of our colleagues who are experts in the field to go in and do some exciting work with them!
