Bishop’s forest of promises
During COP26, the 26th meeting of the annual UN climate Conference Of Parties, students spent time discussing the issues being tackled at this COP. The conference is attended by countries that signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – a treaty agreed in 1994. Across the country, school students have made their pledges to the planet this year. Here are the small changes Bishop’s students have pledged to make to try and take proactive steps towards tackling climate change:
- Turning electrical devices off at the switch
- Use less plastic by reusing/refilling
- Eat less meat
What will be your positive contribution to the fight against the climate crisis?
