Max and Ellis about contributing to COP26 in Glasgow

29 November 2021

Max Eisenbart (21) and Ellis Mourits (22), two Campus Fryslân/University College Fryslân students, contributed tot the COP26 - UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow this year. Supported by Circulair Friesland they reflected on their experiences in a video created by the association (ENG subtitled).

Ellis organized a cycle tour to Glasgow together with 30 other 'Luchtfietsers' and she collected messages of Frysian students on the issue of climate change, which she showed to global leaders. A dream coming true, she says, to cycle to Glasgow for this purpose: "We didn't know exactly how to fulfill this, but through the help of the people around us, the organizations, and everyone during the trip, we managed to do it."

Max moderated an official EU site event on educational matters related to the topic: "A lot is already done, but the plant that has been sown we must water and nurture, so that we, as education, can promote the transition to a sustainable society."
