New stretch target


We are three Year 10 students at Dorothy Stringer School in Brighton. We are fortunate to have been selected to represent the United Kingdom at the Normandy International Youth Leadership Summit in Le Havre, September 2018. Visit: https://en-gb.facebook.com/NIYLS/

The focus of this summit is for students from around the globe to meet and discuss how to build a better future in a more sustainable world. This summit is part of a wider international forum being held by the city of Le Havre where industry and politicians are coming together to nurture a positive economy.

At the summit, we will be presenting our research around the topics of sustainable energy, water and fuel and debating ideas with our counterparts from countries such as Germany, USA and Malaysia. Keeping with this theme, we are delighted to have the opportunity to sail to the conference from Brighton. This traditional way of travelling is also a very sustainable as it uses the wind rather than burning fossil fuels. This would simultaneously support the aims of the summit. We will be sailing with http://sailboatproject.org/

We need to raise a £1000 to pay for the trip. Can you help us?
