Young West Country Friends introduce Greta Thunberg and Caroline Lucas climate summit

A party of a dozen young Friends from Bristol and Bath travelled to London to a lively and packed youth climate summit at Friends House on 22 April. Two of them, Pearl and Sam, introduced the event, which included an energetic hour-long Q&A on climate issues and how to effect change.

The event was organised by British Quakers with The Guardian and a range of environmental groups. Further reports are available here on the British Quakers’ web site, and here on The Guardian web site.

A video of the whole event is available on Guardian Live. 

The trip from Bath and Bristol was organised and supervised by Kirsty Philbrick, Bristol-based youth development worker for Quakers in SW England.
