2021 CORNWALL SCHOOLS’ Virtual ECO-CONFERENCE | 7 June

Date of Event: 7 Jun

We are in the middle of a major re-alignment of values. Young activists like Greta Thunberg, and the millions of people they inspire, are campaigning aggressively to bring about political and social change in order to help save our planet. The mobilisation of young people is one of the strongest catalysts to force politicians to understand that things have to change.
This year, Cornwall will host the G7 Summit. Cornwall’s Schools’ Eco-Conference is focused on providing an opportunity for our school councils and student eco-committees to discuss the priorities of the G7 and identify the issues that are most meaningful to them. How do the issues they care about align with the G7 priority areas? How can our young people unite and take actions – small and big – to create a greener, more prosperous future?

The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”
– Greta Thunberg, addressing the U.N.’s Climate Action Summit in 2019.
