AN eco conference at St Benedict’s School, Ealing, on Tuesday (5) was attended by students from five west London schools.

The conference was led by Peter Milne, founder, and director of Target4Green, who hosted workshops and talks throughout the day.

St Benedict’s students were joined by sixth-formers from Gunnersbury School, Sacred Heart High School, Hammersmith, Cardinal Wiseman School and St Augustine’s Priory.

Mr Milne shared a handwritten letter he had received from Sir David Attenborough, thanking him for his work with schools and communities and urging young people to become involved.

Between presentations and group activities, students visited an exhibition of eco organisations and companies.

 Stalls represented Ealing Transition – a group working on practical solutions to climate change - Friends of the Earth, the Green Party, and Roots & Shoots, a global education programme.
