Meera aims to grab attention of world leaders at COP26

AN ENVIRONMENTALLY-MINDED schoolgirl from Warwick is hoping to grab the attention of world leaders.

With the international COP26 conference on Climate Change coming up in Glasgow, Rotary Clubs around the UK challenged schools to produce posters on the subject.

Both Westgate Primary and Coten End Primary Schools in Warwick rose to the challenge and over a 100 entries were received.

And a poster by Meera Prakash of Coten End was one of two winners selected by judges – out of 700 entries from across the midlands – which will be displayed at the conference for the world leaders to see.

Meera’s poster shows the world as a melting ice cream cone, with the message that “we can make a change” and “every little helps”.

Her headteacher Sarah Sheepy said all the children felt strongly about the climate change challenge faced by the world and the school was playing its part by looking at ways to reduce the impact it had on the environment.

Rotary Clubs have made the Protecting the Environment a key area of focus for their work across the globe.
