Pupils from around North Somerset including Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead discussed how they could solve the problem of plastic in the world’s oceans.

The event was held at DoubleTree By Hilton, Cadbury House where 100 school representatives looked at environmental issues including global warning and palm tree oil.

The children are now planning on how they can use the combined energies of the schools which attended to impact on the global problems.

Mary Elton representatives said: “We have only one generation to save the oceans and we are that generation.”
