Schools’ volunteer Clive Gallagher used his experience working in Africa to give first hand examples of how climate change affected people there. He also mentioned how the little things we do and take for granted can contribute to climate change such as not recycling, leaving the tap running while brushing teeth, leaving gadgets on standby etc..  He got everyone (including the adults) thinking and reflecting.

The CAFOD Confirmation Group decided to do something more.
