MP repeats net zero commitment at school tree planting


29th October 2019

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin donated an oak tree to a county primary school as part of a nationwide campaign to plant more trees.

Harriett was given the tree as part of the national climate change protests in London and she handed the tree over to Lower Broadheath Primary School.

The MP talked to the pupils about the problems of climate change and the need to act – including outlining the Government’s commitment to net zero emissions by 2050, when most of the pupils will be in their 30s.

Harriett was joined by pupils planting the tree at the growing primary school, which is building a new classroom, next year, funded by Worcestershire County Council, replacing a dilapidated portakabin.

Harriett said: “Whilst I don’t agree with some of their protest tactics, I was happy to take delivery of one of the Extinction Rebellion saplings. As a nation, we are attempting to plant 11 million extra trees before 2022 and I encourage as many people as possible to take part if they can.

“Every time I speak at a primary school, I listen very closely to their views as they will become teenagers and then adults as the nation works towards delivering on our country’s net zero emission ambitions.

“I hope that as well as showing them that the Government is serious about their future, it would be great to think that they are being inspired to think more about ways that we can make the environment much better for us, our children and grandchildren.”
