That the Parliament celebrates the international discussions that pupils from St Peter the Apostle High School in Clydebank had with students from Santiago, Chile; recognises that, as part of the Climate Change committee, students had the opportunity to discuss local and international climate issues directly impacting their lives; understands that the discussions were held via video call and will be presented at COP26 in association with University of Glasgow; applauds the pupils' keen understanding of the climate emergency and their willingness to listen and collaborate with international peers, and looks forward to the announcement of eco policies decided by the pupils, influenced by their new Chilean friends.
