Inspired to see all the work of the pupils in response to COP26.
My message is that despite the situation seeming so depressing, we can take comfort from the ability of nature to bounce back if we give it the chance. There are many examples of this happening around the world, both by design and because people have walked away and left nature alone. Young people, particularly those in indigenous communities who depend on the forest in the tropics, are aware of this and have been raising their voice at COP26 as guardians of the forest. There are signs of leaders listening and changing damaging policies, such as deforestation. There is a way to go but things are starting to go in the right direction.

What super work! It makes me proud and hopeful to see such engagement, creativity and achievement in Learning for Sustainability.
However:
It was very important that COP26 mapped out how we could have a realistic expectation of restricting global warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. We needed a concrete realistic plan of phasing out fossil fuel use and a coherent plan to fund developing countries' transition away from them, especially coal, in a way that transparently supports climate justice.
Unfortunately none of these goals has been realised. Indeed, promises made at Copenhagen and Paris have yet to be delivered.
So Greta Thunberg is sadly not wrong when she says that COP26 has been little more than "Blah, blah, blah"! It was always going to be a challenge. But it is disappointing that vested interests have been allowed to sap the will of those willing to meet the challenge.
I regret to say that this makes me very angry.

It's hard to keep hopeful when the leaders at COP26 seem to be doing so little. This exhibition gives me hope that the younger generations can do a better job than we have of protecting the planet and each other. It's just so unfair they should have to work so hard to clear up the mess made by my generation and others!
