The Mock COP is a fantastic event held at the Welsh Assembly where students participate in teams of three, each representing a different country. We were Brazil and Australia. Size of Wales ran the conference along with CEWC as a model UN discussing climate change.

The Philippians gave a draft resolution and then countries began negotiating, proposing amendments. Size of Wales tweeted: “Climate change knows no war, no politics and no religion” Very wise words from  on behalf of Brazil .

CEWC tweeted: Final amendment to draft prpsd by , for every country’s statistics on to be available to public is passed.

The students found it great fun and a real eye-opener for how international politics works. It was brilliant to meet students from a range of schools all over Wales and the quality of discussion was inspiring. It’s also a fantastic venue so we will sign up for next year too!
