Model Climate Conferences
We are pleased to offer secondary schools and young people’s groups a Model Climate Conference, modelled on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Conferences of the Parties (COP). The conferences enthuse and challenge students to think about the national and international implications of climate change.
At each Conference students are invited to represent a country in groups of 3 to 5. Throughout the formal negotiation process, and informal networking during the breaks, groups are supported to put forward their country’s points of view on climate change.
A total of around 40-70 students ideally take part and we have found that holding the event in local Council Chambers provides a great atmosphere.
To date we have engaged with schools in Reading, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, West Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
