Gedling MP Vernon Coaker presented with climate change petition by Carlton le Willows Academy pupils


Gedling MP Vernon Coaker was presented with a petition last week from Carlton le Willows pupils calling for urgent action on climate change.

Year 10 twins Shahnaz and Alisha Begum presented the local MP with a petition signed by students from all year groups at the Academy, along with a letter detailing students’ views on how urgent action needs to be taken to address the issues of climate change.

The petition forms part of the Academy’s approach to the environmental issue, teaching students how to get their voices heard beyond the school gates and help effect positive change.

Last week he tweeted “It was a pleasure to meet Alisha and Shahnaz especially on such an important issue like climate change.

“I will be raising this again in Parliament and making sure the voice of students are the school are heard. We need action now.”
