Make a difference day at the Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College

Members of Darlington Friends of the Earth we invited to talk to students at the Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College about how they could make a positive change to their local community while listening to which environmental issues concerned them most.

Meeting the students at the QE

Kendra Ullyart said, "We were delighted by the number of students who shared our concern for the environment. They demonstrated a good understanding of many issues. We heard how they opposed fracking, were concerned about loss of habitat for bees and felt that public transport and road safety were not taken seriously enough."

Matthew Snedker speaking about our latest campaign 'Meat Free May' said, "This campaign interested lots of those who we spoke to. They understood the link between intensive meat production and the damage to our environment. Many of them were up for a challenge!" [You can down load a challenge sheet for yourself from this blog]

Signing up for Young Friends of the Earth
We already have 3 students in our group and with the number who signed up at this event we are confident that we will soon have our very own Young Friends of the Earth group in action.
