Student teams from 10 Solihull schools and colleges represent 16 nations in a high-profile COP27-style event hosted in Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council chambers.

At last year’s event, Councill Courts hosted a Climate Q&A for the participants, an opportunity which is also being brought to this year’s event

At the event, scheduled for the 17th November, the young people participating will debate global progress and try to agree more ambitious climate action before turning the focus locally as schools showcase their own climate actions.

We’re excited that awards will be presented for various climate action led by Solihull schools. A live Climate Q&A with the Leader of Solihull Council, Councillor Ian Courts, is a fitting conclusion to the packed morning – a great way for young people to directly raise their pressing questions about local action on climate change. 

InterClimate Network is once again grateful to Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council for co-funding and hosting the conference, to the Mayor of Solihull for formally opening the conference, and to the Sustainability Team and other officers for their support.
