THE GRAMMAR School put its views on climate change to Education minister Carol Steere yesterday. The discussion took place at the launch of posters designed to highlight young people’s opinions on global warming.
Students from the school attended a seminar on climate change in March and were asked to consider the effects it could have on Guernsey. They were asked to think of ways islanders could respond to the challenges of climate change and those ideas have been developed into a range of posters which will be distributed in the island.
Schools and businesses will be given copies and Alun Williams, lifelong learning manager at the Education Department, said the students’ views were very valuable.
‘Young people contribute and can resolve this situation more so than any other group in the community because it’s something they will inherit,’ he said. ‘The posters will show the views of young people regarding climate change and what they feel needs to be done.’
