On Monday 3 February, Cafe Sci welcomed guest speaker Shirley Ann Waterhouse from Greenpeace to talk about the climate emergency.
The girls who attended the event found it very useful and thought that it was important to address topics such as travel and veganism and their effects on the environment. Shirley spoke about the causes, effects and solutions for the emergency. We were able to see the difference one transatlantic flight makes in terms of gas emissions and also small scale solutions for example washing our clothes at a lower temperature.
It was an incredibly interesting talk and we are grateful that we have been able to learn more about the environment and our roles. Although we are not always able to make the best decision for the climate, all of the positive actions do add up.
