Students and staff at The Jam Academy today decided to take action for Climate Change collectively. Instead of students striking from school and joining the marches across the country. Science lessons this morning made way for campaign head quarters to be set up and letters be written to local council representatives.
‘Climate Change is a big part of the science curriculum now. Therefore students take this issue very seriously. As a school community we wanted to show our support for the international effort of amazing young people. But changing the world can seem impossible, so we decided to tackle it at a local level’
Students and Mark Hartley (Curriculum Director for The Jam Academy) took letters to the leaders of Marlow Town Council and Wycombe District Council asking them to consider declaring a ‘Climate Emergency’.
Depending on their councillors responses, students at The Jam Academy are considering their next move. With around 2500 secondary school aged students in Marlow alone, Jam students wish to join forces with other young people in the area to keep up the pressure for real and meaningful change before 2030.
