CLSG climate change panel discussion

Exploring how they can make a difference in the fight against climate change, City of London School for Girls, invited Human Rights and Environmental lawyer Wessen Jazrawi, to join a panel discussion titled ‘Climate change, which job roles really hold the key to making a difference'. 

They wanted to find out more about how she worked with 16 young people from around the world, including Greta Thunberg, to file a ground breaking legal complaint about climate change to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.

Other expert panellists were:

  • Mary Starks, OFGEM
  • Meaghan Muldoon, BlackRock
  • Rowenna Trvellyan, Ocean Agency
  • Claire Farrell, Extinction Rebellion

They are already taking action with making the school greener assisted by the student-led group Sustainability Committee and Plastic Action Group, but they wanted to know why the panellists believe their career path should be considered as one making a significant impact on climate change.

The session drew to a close with an interactive Q&A session.
