HGS STUDENT APPOINTED FIRST BRITISH UN YOUTH AMBASSADOR FOR CLIMATE CHANGE LEARNING
A Climate Change Education Programme for Primary and Secondary schools in the UK has appointed Hannah-Jane Kenton (7A) as its first British UN Youth Ambadassor for Climate Change Learning.
In conjunction with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), the organisation will develop and deliver an innovative climate change education programme for children. The Programme's mission is to teach children how to understand and live in a world affected by climate change, but without fear. Through a close collaboration with the private sector, the project will be scaled up globally, connecting children from around the world through a direct discussion based on the concept of 'Climate Change Diaries'.
This is an incredible achievement and we wish Hannah-Jane every success in her new role.
