On Monday Andrew George took part in a Climate Conference hosted by Humphry Davy School. Delegates from over twenty primary and secondary schools came together for the day and took part in a wide range of art, music, science and other environmental workshops with visiting experts and organisations.
Andrew George (who, when he isn't campaigning, works for the Cornwall Community Land Trust) was given tokens by the children to vote for the environmental measures he felt would make a big impact. He listened to the children singing and answered their questions on the need to improve public transport; he described the sustainable energy efficiency features of the homes his charity builds and the ways in which wildlife is encouraged for example by including bat boxes and bee houses. Finally Andrew pedalled his fastest on the classroom bicycle to generate electricity and lit a few bulbs truly 'building a brighter future for Britain'!
