My Guernsey Future

Young people from  the sixth forms and Year 11 from all schools on the island took the opportunity to talk to Island Leaders, including Deputies, CEO's of companies, charities, commissions and Finance Institutions. They wanted to know what the current leaders and their organisations are are doing to push towards net zero and secure their futures in a warming world.

Mia Edgworth is responsible for bringing these networking events to Government House. She was one of 2022-2023's cohort of Lieutenant-Governor's Cadets, a sixth former at The Ladies' College, former Chair of the Youth Forum and a very passionate and determined young lady.

40 young people seized the invitation and ran with it. Giving some of the adults little room to manoeuvre and asking some pretty testing questions. 

Mia and her Science teacher, Karen Mitchell who helped Mia set up these events were really pleased with the contacts that were made and are hopeful that some inclusion in the curriculum that would give young people more tools to push forward with these difficult topics and give them the confidence to pressure the people currently in power and to take up the mantle themselves as they enter the working world.
