Holme Grange School hosted the 13th Beyond COP21 Symposium with over 100 pupils attending onsite and 4 local schools (Evendons, St Crispin's, Waverley and St. Teresa's) attending via 'Zoom'.

Beyond COP21 Symposium contributes a key ingredient to future success as a result of the historic Paris talks: the education and mobilisation of the youth and school communities. It links the Climate Crisis to the crucial role of, and action on, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through a platform which supports whole school engagement, community outreach and corporate responsibility.

'Despite the challenges faced by the pandemic, the school demonstrated great resolve, passion and determination in making this event a great success and showing its commitment towards Sustainability.' (Beyond COP21 representative)

A huge thank you to all the guests who participated and contributed to the success of the event through exhibiting, running workshops and presenting.

These included Matt Larsen-Daw, Education Manager WWF-UK; Tara Golshan, Director of Education at Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots; Ricardo Carioni, Deputy Ambassador of Nicaragua to the UK, Ireland and Iceland; ChicP, Dr. Jeff Allan; Melanie Harwood at eduCCate Global and Onestep.

"What a brilliant symposium. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to be part of it and engage with such wonderful young students. It really gives me hope seeing their interest and knowledge in sustainability and climate action. And I loved every minute of it. Thank you!" Ricardo Carioni (Deputy Ambassador - Embassy of Nicaragua to UK, Ireland & Iceland).
