Manchester students got the opportunity to share their views on Climate Change with some of the City’s key decision makers during a Student Assembly event, in June 2022. The three-day event was attended by 66 students from across Manchester participating in a range of activities, from a podcast camp and workshops on campaigning to placard making whilst engaging with key stakeholders. On the final day, all 66 students gathered to share their thoughts and ideas with Councillors including the Executive Member for Environment and the Executive member for Early Years, Children and Young People.
Participants appreciated the practical advice that was shared and enjoyed the opportunity to speak to colleagues in the education sector about the climate agenda. Overall feedback was overwhelmingly positive empowering a generation of young people.
