With the important international conference on climate change coming up in Glasgow, Rotary Clubs around the UK challenged schools to produce posters on the subject.

A poster by Meera Prakash of Coten End Primary School was one of two winners selected by judges out of 700 entries from across the Midlands and will be displayed at COP 26 for the world leaders to see.

Meera’s poster showed the world as a melting ice cream cone, with the message 'we can make a change' and 'every little helps'.

Rotary Clubs have made 'protecting the environment' a key area of focus for their work across the globe.
