Climate Emergency Assembly - expression of thanks
19 Sep
Dear Head Teachers, This message is to extend our thanks and appreciation for mobilising the pupils that attended the Climate Emergency Assembly at Stratford Town Hall; and the staff members who accompanied them. The turn out and participation by young people was exceptional. This would not have happened without your support – thank you! Importantly, please do convey our sincere thanks to your pupils. A special mention must go to Britannia Village primary school. These pupils albeit some of the youngest, made a positive contribution to the assembly. The Mayor and her Cabinet singled out many of the ideas raised from the youth assembly and were really interested in the contributions regarding the use and benefits of Solar Panels in schools, and the concept of making the next Newham Show climate emergency themed. It was evident from everyone’s participation and contribution that they are expecting to see genuine changes occur in Newham – where this borough will top the list of places in the country that is carbon-neutral, energy efficient; has very low emissions by promoting more walking, cycling and the use of renewable-powered public transport, tree planting and recycling etc. The assembly garnered a lot of inspiring, creative and innovative suggestions and recommendations from young people on how the council can tackle its climate change emergency. We would be happy to share these slides with you if helpful. Please be assured that the suggestions and ideas gathered from young people at the Youth Assembly will be taken forward by the council and we fully intend to develop a young people’s working group to track and drive the changes that were raised by the Youth Assembly. We would be more than happy to find ways to include your pupils with this and or keep you informed. In this way we can ensure that we continue to gather and escalate the most up to date issues and concerns from young people which will be utilised to shape the councils response to the Climate Emergency. The incredible turnout clearly demonstrated young people’s passion regarding what is occurring in their local communities, the country and around the world. Hence, we will ensure that we create bigger spaces and more opportunities to continue to listen and implement their suggestions. Following the assembly the Councils’ cabinet met, and the majority of the cabinet meeting was dedicated to discussing young people’s views and feelings around climate change. The Mayor is a strong advocate on climate change issues, and she is keen to take many of the things that the young people have said forward. Through follow up assemblies there will be opportunities for children and young people to hear about the progress made and what still needs to be done. We will certainly inform you about future assemblies, and would like to hear from your pupils regarding what they will want in terms of design and agenda. Again, thank you for all your support.
