To mark World Environment Day, SPEAC took the lead in organising a series of events and campaigns to encourage positive eco action. Charlotte, VII, tells us more:
SPEAC remains extremely active in spite of lockdown. On Wednesday members of the VII SPEAC team gave a video assembly to the MIV around ways to stay eco at home. We are also collaborating with other schools, with reps attending weekly Zoom meetings of the London Schools Eco-Network, a fast-growing action group of students and staff set up in the Autumn that numbers over 20 different schools. To mark World Environment Day, SPEAC joined forces with other student members of the network to produce a joint video assembly and lockdown newsletter, hold a joint lunchtime eco discussion group and launch an MP email campaign to encourage them to support a green economic recovery plan.
