Interclimate Network’s – Climate Voices
Gumley’s Eco club students showcase their work at this National Summit Conference at Portcullis House, Westminster
‘Climate Voices’ brought together a number of UK schools with high profile speakers.
Our year 8 and 9 students showcased their sustainability projects as part of the ‘Climate Action Fair’. Additionally, they participated in workshops & talks covering issues from energy to waste and recycling, whilst also hearing from a range of key contributors that included:
- The Rt Hon Sir Ed Davey, MP
- The Rt Hon Dame Caroline Spelman MP
- Mary Creagh MP, Chair Environmental Audit Committee
- Kirsty Schneeberger MBE, Client Earth
- Maureen Grant, Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust
- Lord Paul Tyler, Honorary President, ICN
Our Eco club has been very active with the launch of some extraordinary initiatives that include:
- Living Water -’Think Not Sink’ Production of Gumley reusable water bottles that will be sold in our cafeteria.
- Give Nature A Home – Creation of our bird boxes will provide a nesting site for birds in the London Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve.
- Endangered Species Project – Students produced Orang-utan cut outs that were also displayed across the school.
Congratulations to all our Eco Club Students
