A number of Island School students had the great opportunity to attend the BEI Forum last June 2014. The BEI initiative was set up by major banks and the University of Cambridge four years ago to investigate and create ways so that banks can work with government agencies, investors and corporations to address environmental issues.
The forum included seniors from all the stakeholders in this initiative, looking at the issues from all sides. The keynote address was from Anthony Jenkins, CEO of Barclays, who welcomed our students and spoke with them in a private discussion after his speech.
The Island School students were delegates to the forum on equal status with their experienced adult partners and contributed to the discussions.You can read the comprehensive report they have made about the forum by clicking on the link below.
