Journey to the Sinking Lands

A witness to the world's first evacuation of an entire people due to climate change

Things go in circles

I was back at my old primary school this morning to give an assembly on this trip and about climate change. I absolutely loved it – particularly because I can remember sitting where they are looking up a people standing to give an assembly where I was standing today. As they say, things go in circles.

I didn’t have a camera with me today but these are a few pictures from a similar assembly I was invited to give last week at Clearwell School in the Forest of Dean. The three kids on the right were volunteers, who got to taste pre-salted slices of fruit to see what happens when the sea floods your crops. They took it very well considering…clearwell-audienceclearwell-globe-21

Thank you Dan. Your visit to us at Clearwell School was very inspiring. The children were fascinated and enlightened by all that you told them . As a result, Year Five and Six will be focussing their learning on global enivornmental issues next term. They are eagerly awaiting updates from your trip and look forward to your visit on your return.
