Youth MP – Gareth Hughes’ visit to MAC

Last Friday, Green youth MP Gareth Hughes spoke to several members of MAC Team Green as part of the school’s ‘Team Green’ day.

MAC Team Green with GarethGareth answered a variety of questions from students regarding our oceans and their commercial use, the internet and his role in campaigning for it to be more free and open as well as renewable energy and the solar power for schools plan to reduce electricity bills. The last was of particular interest to Team Green as their ‘seed fund’ that raises money through recycling paper aims to acquire solar panels for the school.
Gareth also spoke about his role of being a young MP in parliament and overall the talk was enjoyed by all who attended.  Noel

The key messages I’ve recorded are Gareth‘s motto “Connect – Construct – Contribute”
And he reckons the more important issues for a group like us are:  Solar, Climate change and Building alliances.  Florence
