The College was delighted to host a Mini Climate Change Conference and Youth Summit as part of DCSDC's Good Relations Week '22. The Conference had guest speakers from local government, national and international charities and local environmental activists highlighting the climate crisis from a range of perspectives such as policy, mitigations, lobbying and environmental movements. The mini conference was followed by a Youth Summit on Climate Change to provide students with their opportunity to have their say on the topic and aid them to develop skills to make a change and become activists and campaign for change both locally and globally.
We and all of our guests were particularly enthused and hopeful for the future due to the huge passion and engagement from young people and their appetite to make change for themselves and future generations. We are keen to foster the ideas and enthusiasm of young people and welcome their contributions to the Student Sustainability Society and look forward to a series of events in this area over this academic year.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to our Guest Speakers and Workshops facilitators and DCSDC for supporting the event. We would also like to thank our HNC Media and Journalism students who covered the event via film and reporting.
