Reading students played a big part at Reading’s 3rd Climate Strategy Consultation on 13th June 2019. Their contribution at ICN’s Reading Climate Conference in 2018 had been mentioned when the Council motion declared a Climate Emergency in February.
ICN was delighted to hold its National Summit 2018 in Portcullis House, Westminster. The Summit was the culmination of our 3-year ‘Climate Voices I’ project. The Programme provided opportunities for 13 – 19 year olds to broaden their critical knowledge of climate change and develop their voices on climate issues through work and debate with decision-makers.
