Young People & Climate Breakdown -March 13th

Our friends at the Bedfordshire Climate Change Forum are holding an event on 13th March from 7.30pm on the theme of Young People & Climate Breakdown.

Join them in Room G011 (ground floor) of the Gateway Building on Polhill Avenue, Bedford,  as they consider young people & climate change, especially in the light of the recent regular school strikes for climate. Using short films they will consider reactions to these strikes; the role of young leaders such as Greta Thunberg; how climate change is explained in schools; and how school students can take a greater part in determining what and how they learn about climate change. 

This event is free but donations are welcome.
