An action group campaigning for climate change prevention has held its first political hustings event.

Climate Emergency Clevedon held a debate in association with Clevedon School and Sustainable Clevedon on April 3, which was chaired by debating students Ruby May-Hawkins and Rory McGuigan.

Teacher Chris Campbell, who organises the debating society at the school, said: 'We were delighted to have the opportunity to debate climate change.

“Education is key to helping solve this issue and as such schools have a vital role to play.”

Climate Emergency Clevedon spokesman, Chris Boddington, called for a big response to the problems facing the planet.

He added: “The climate emergency we are facing is equal to the challenge this country faced in 1939.

“If our civilisation is to survive, we need politicians who understand this, and who can show the necessary leadership.”
