Wellington College: Georgina and Cindy return from COP26

The implications of the decisions made at the recent COP26 conference in Glasgow will reverberate for years, and possibly centuries, to come. We are extremely proud that two Wellington Pupils were part of that momentous occasion. Just before half term, lower sixth form students, Georgiana and Cindy (both O) were selected from over 200 applicants to form part of a team representing the UK Schools Sustainability Network (UKSSN).

In the films enclosed in the link at the bottom of the article below Georgiana and Cindy talk about their key COP26 moments and give us top tips on how to live more sustainably.

Since their return they have been busy with numerous post-conference commitments. These include sharing their remarkable achievements by:

  • Inputting to a UKSSN newsletter
  • Taking part in post-COP discussions with other UKSSN students and staff
  • Taking part in interviews with each other about COP26 to feature on the UKSSN website/socials etc.
  • Taking part in a video report about school sustainability and highlights of COP26 for KS2-3 students
  • Creating a general UKSSN poster for upcoming regional and national network events
  • Creating artwork/images of the successful MP postcards from COP to raise awareness of the demands

Some of the students will also be hosting a UKSSN zoom meeting with the journalist and Guardian Newspaper columnist, George Monbiot.

We look forward to learning more about their trip and the future of sustainability at Wellington.
