What is the Bee Green Education Summit?


On 30 June, leaders from nurseries, schools and colleges will be attending the Bee Green Education Summit at Connell Co-op College. The event, involving 100 youngsters, will see young people challenge their headteachers and politicians to do more to tackle the climate crisis.


In preparation for the event, young people will attend a 2-day workshop to learn about climate change and create films, podcasts and songs to express their concerns.


More on the Summit to be announced soon!
