Southwell Minster School
6pm

Before the Flood

GREEN-minded pupils are joining the fight to tackle climate change with the launch of an ambitious green movement that they hope to roll out across all the schools in Nottinghamshire and, eventually, the country. A group of Southwell Minster sixth-form students has formed the Schools Environmental Mission with the aim to raise awareness about changes in individual behaviour that can make a difference. Students have been working for more than five months on the project with guidance provided by local entrepreneur Andy Scothern, and they want to eventually create a template that can be rolled out across all schools. To launch the mission, the pupils have organised a screening of the much-praised Fisher Stevens’ film Before The Flood, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, on September 25th (and possibly September 27th) from 6pm to 8.30pm at the Minster School in Southwell. Tickets are £7.50 (plus booking fee) which can be bought by going to www.eventbrite.co.uk. All money raised will be used to fund the project going forward.
