"Young people of all ages from across Cumbria came together to discuss their concerns about climate change with local councillors attending to hear what they had to say. The event was attended by representatives from 30 schools, and was hosted by Learning, Education and Development Centre, University of Cumbria." Thanks to Robert Ferguson Primary School in Carlisle for the information and the below film:
The first ever UCC eSports FIFA Tournament has been won by Year 11 student Kacper. Kacper won it after beating Year 7 student Shay in a high scoring final, finishing 4-2. 64 students took part in the competition over a period of 10 weeks. Top effort from all involved and the challenge is now on to knock Kacper off top spot!
As a result of the crumbling UK government, young people like us are being blatantly ignored when it comes to the subject of our plant. As a result, the Eco-Council at UCC came together to host a formal event raising awareness of the ever growing issue which is Climate Change. This event along with interviews with local councillor, Rory Stewart, will hopefully help our world in the long run. #climatestrike #climatechange #strike4change

We would like to thank Mr Stewart for giving up his time and displaying a clear enthusiasm for engaging with students, whilst offering an intelligent sense of realism to the discussion. We look forward to further meetings, as we aim to address this crucial issue.

37 people living in refugee camps in Calais, France are warmer today. Thanks to UCC students who generously donated hats, scarves, socks and gloves. I know that we have worked together to make the lives of these people a little better, and I hope that next year we can help even more people.
