B&NES Youth Climate Summit – Friday 19th March


We wanted to tell you about a fab event happening on Friday 19th March, organised and led by us, your Sixth Form Leadership Team.

The event will provide a forum for over 100 students, representing more than 12 schools, the opportunity to meet, discuss, and engage with a wide variety of climate change and sustainability experts. We’ve got workshops and speakers discussing topics from fast fashion to sustainable eating and food wastage, alongside an opening address by Bath MP Bath Wera Hobhouse who is a big supporter of the event.

The Summit will mark the end of a week-long set of activities by students across the schools, culminating with the declaration of a climate emergency, providing the momentum for change to occur in schools and the wider community.

Organising the conference has been extremely fulfilling and exciting, and we are hoping that it will be super successful and make a difference to young people and their families across BANES and beyond.

If you have any questions about the conference, you can email climate@hayesfield.com

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram, both with the handle @BYCS2021

We hope you will get involved in the tutor activities and make some changes that will impact our planet.
