London (Hounslow) will kick off the 2019 series of Climate Conferences in London, Cheltenham, Solihull, Bristol, and Reading. Students from schools across the area will debate global progress and will be inspired to more climate action by meeting local experts.
We are excited to be working with Hounslow secondary schools this year. The support of London Borough of Hounslow means that our Climate Conference will be held in their Council Chambers for the first time. Ongoing support from council teams in the other four areas means we are again able to bring students together in their own Council Chambers to also meet with their Mayor, Councillors and locally active organisations. We have held annual Climate Conferences in Bristol, Cheltenham, Reading, and Solihull several times before. The dates are:
Hounslow Civic Suite, Friday 22 November 2019
Cheltenham Council Chambers, Tuesday 26 November
Solihull Civic Suite, Thursday 28 November
Bristol City Hall, Wednesday 4 December
Reading Civic Offices, Friday 6 December
The Conferences and follow-up activities are part of ICN’s Climate Voices Programme supported by Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and Garfield Weston Foundation. Additional funding specifically to enable our activities in Hounslow has been provided jointly by the SEGRO Community Fund, managed by the London Community Foundation, and the #iwill Fund. The #iwill Fund is a joint initiative of the National Lottery Community Fund and DCMS.
