DGS to host RET Climate SummitPosted on: 02/11/2021
In honour of the UK hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Didcot Girls School will be hosting the RET Climate Summit on Thursday 4th November. Students will be taking on the roles of delegates such as Jeff Bezos, Sir David Attenborough and leaders in farming and agriculture in order to negotiate policies in reducing the global temperature rise. We are lucky enough to have Dr. Heather Comina running a climate change simulation alongside the negotiations, to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed policies or highlight any potential catastrophes we have yet to consider.
The day will finish with Q and A discussion with a panel of special guests including local councillors David Rouane and Sally Povolosky, Sustainable Harwell’s Martin Gibson, marine biologist Anna Harrison and Bioregional Oxfordshire’s Nicole Lazarus.
