The Transform Our World Youth Summit culminates in Summit Finale on Friday 12 November

 

    Join this one-hour session at 10am on Friday 12 November to find out more about the journey which this Summit has taken you on, looking at individual actions we can do, people in power we can influence and the importance of living our true values.  

     

    Hear from a range of panellists, including young people, who discuss their own experiences of action, power and values, and the best ways forward to transform our world.  

     

    Whether you’ve watched one session from the Summit, or have tuned in all day every day, we encourage everyone to join this important conversation. 

     

    Who's on the panel?

     

    Steve Frampton MBE is Further Education/Higher Education Climate Commissioner and Chair of Association of Colleges Services Board. Steve has done a number of teaching roles, including Principal of Portsmouth College from 2005-2018.  

     

    Steve’s extensive career has been recognised at the highest level, with the awarding of a MBE for Services to Education in the Queen’s New Year Honours.  

     

    Dr Meryl Batchelder is a science teacher in Corbridge Middle School, Northumberland. She is a proponent of environmental education and aims to equip her pupils with both the skills needed for the green jobs of the future and the knowledge on how to lead a sustainable life.

    Nikash, from the Midlands Schools Sustainability Network (part of the UK Schools Sustainability Network): 

    "My name is Nikash and I am a pupil in the final year of Sixth Form. Initially quite oblivious to climate changes and its effects on our and future generations, my eyes were opened by a teacher at my school. Since then, we've gone on to start a regional network, connecting with local organizations and institutions to discuss and act upon initiatives to address the eco-related issues."

     

    Students from Trinity Church of England School in Lewisham will also be joining the panel.
