Hastings School was selected from among more than 1,500 schools to take part in the COP25, the 25th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change.
On one hand, the pupils who were acting as journalists and photojournalists were given the task of interviewing the participants and attendees at the Summit, including among others the Vice President of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans. Also, there were students who became investigators and documentary makers, investigating everything that happened during the event.
On the other hand, students in the role of artists gave several performances alongside a collective mural designed from recycled materials, to raise society’s awareness of the impact of our activities on Planet Earth.
Secondary and Sixth For students were the protagonists of the “International and Young Ambassadors for the Planet” Conference, an innovative adaption of Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol in which the spectators are made aware of the climate crisis and emergency.
In Primary, following all the work Year 4 did on the environment this term, they wrote letters to #COP25 with what they want for the world!
Throughout the twelve days of the summit, the main objective was the search for joint solutions to the climate change challenges we face. Our pupils contributed to this event by carrying out different roles in the Green Zone.
