Global Diplomacy: Tackling the Issue of Climate Change

Global Politics & MG20 Club teamed up with WANBO to promote sustainability through debating the issue of climate change as national government officials on 23rd March 2021.

Climate Change was the pop-up case of the day. Pop-up cases are short, one-page scenarios based on issues reverberating in the news today, sparking discussions. Through discussions and group work, students developed their communication and leadership skills by examining different world issues. They also attended workshops to further their understanding of what it means to be a confident speaker. 

Sam Hui (11W), club leader said, “Thank you to all who have actively spoken in the summit. Climate change is an alarming issue in today’s world. As ambassadors of the future, we must stand in solidarity to raise awareness of this issue.”

“As always, we thank the school community for their continued support of conservation and environmental projects.”

Mr Ross Burrough, WANBO support teacher said, “Most of us are aware of the problems caused by climate change, and we are now finding solutions? It is exciting to see that students are working on these innovative real world solutions that can be put into action.”

Global Politics & MG20 club is held weekly every Tuesday. Year 7-10 students who are interested in joining the club can sign up on the Gateway.

The WANBO team is looking to recruit new volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Ross Burrough (ross.burrough@online.island.edu.hk). Space on the teams are limited, so early sign up is advised.
