Pupils Attend Hampshire COP26

Published Tuesday 18th of January 2022 12:00:00 PM

On 8 October 2021 five members of the Upper Sixth attended the East Hampshire COP26 conference in Alton.

The conference was the brainchild of local MP Damian Hinds, who wanted to give an opportunity for local businesses, schools and environmental groups to share what they are already doing to combat climate change, and discuss how we might do even more. There were many interesting stalls set up by local groups which gave a wealth of inspiring ideas.

The five girls were all interviewed by Petersfield Shine Radio about how they felt about the threat of climate change and what they hoped would be the result of both the East Hampshire conference and also the full COP26 in Glasgow.

Along with representatives from Bedales School, The Petersfield School, Alton School and Bohunt School, our students spoke to an audience of business leaders and local politicians about all that Churcher’s is doing to combat climate change and reduce our environmental impact.
