Six schools from across the UK selected to take part in youth engagement programme
13 January 2022
Six schools from across the UK have been selected to take part in the House of Lords’ Environment and Climate Change Committee’s pioneering youth engagement programme.
In the programme, students from each of the schools will feed into the Committee’s inquiry into behaviour change for climate change and the environment – read more about the inquiry at the link above.
The students will provide their insights on approaches to tackling the climate crisis through behaviour change from the perspective from young people. They will work with the Committee in its inquiry through feeding back on topics that they think should be explored, and through commenting on evidence received from stakeholders.
The Committee received over 100 applications from schools to take part in the youth engagement programme, all of which were of high quality. The six schools selected to take part in the pilot youth engagement programme are:
- St Catherine’s College in Eastbourne, England
- Stockton Riverside College in Stockton-on-Tees, England
- Birkenhead Sixth Form College in Birkenhead, England
- Grove Academy in Dundee, Scotland
- Ulidia Integrated College in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland
- Ysgol Cwm Brombil in Port Talbot, Wales
