Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas held an afternoon of inspirational sessions on a range of environmental issues to launch Cheney School’s Green Festival.
The politician had lunch with the newly-formed Year 12 Environmental Student Team at the school in Headington before opening the event to pupils, staff and community visitors.
Audience members asked tricky questions on a variety of sustainability issues as the Brighton Pavilion MP spoke on the importance of lowering the legal voting age to 16.
Festival organisers from Rumble Museum thanksed all those who took part and said: “The audience had a wide range of questions, from drug policy to nuclear energy and more – Caroline answered each one thoughtfully and with great clarity.”
Oxfam, Oxford University and the Low Carbon Hub delivered workshops to raise awareness of environmental and conservation causes, such as climate change, single use plastics and solar energy.
