The Mayor’s Debate
Members of the Sixth Form History and Politics Society and Eco Committee were invited by the Mayor to engage in a debate on the topic of sustainability in Reigate and Banstead. A variety of ideas were discussed such as transport alternatives to lower carbon emissions and incentives to reduce single-use plastic. Notably, Sarah T gave a passionate argument for increasing the awareness that our actions have on the environment, commenting that “Words and Instagram posts won’t suck the CO2 out of the atmosphere but could incentivise people to make the right decisions”. The Mayor seemed impressed by the good quality of discourse and will hopefully take forward some of the ideas raised.
