Hundreds of students are expected to march through Middlesbrough as part of climate change protest.
The protest is led by the Climate Strike 4 Youth movement, but will be supported by Extinction Rebellion Middlesbrough.
Andy Preston, Mayor of Middlesbrough, is expected to turn up to greet participants at the start of the day.
The town is joining in with a global strike happening on the same day, to protest the lack of action towards climate and environment policy.
Protestors can expect music, songs, and open mic speeches that welcome anyone to take the stage.
If you want to get involved, the march will start at 11am in Centre Square, Middlesbrough on November 29.
Before beginning the protest, participants will ‘centre themselves’ with the use of songs, and mutual conversations.
Everyone is welcome, and more information can be found here.
Bachelor of the Arts in Journalism
I have a passion for creating high quality written work about a wide variety of subjects, although my focus for the last few years has been particularly on outdoor sports and lifestyle.
I currently write for ThirtySquare, about the world of surfing and body surfing, and Welan, an outdoor clothing company. With them both, I have fantastic business relations and use my 6 years of experience with outdoor sports to write eloquent, engaging content to maximize their audience. I have a heavy interest in adventure sports, and am aiming to bring that love and passion to the media industry – in the hopes to entertain, educate and to encourage more people to get involved.

Employment, Work Experience & Volunteering
For the last five months I have been working as a freelance adventure writer, with a specific focus on surfing and sustainability. During that time I have had the opportunity to work with multiple clients to produce emotional and explanatory pieces that will best suit their audience. Examples of these can be found within my portfolio.
I am also currently volunteering with the media team of UKLSG, the UK Lifeguard Solidarity Group, to create more media coverage about the concerning lack of lifeguarded beaches in the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic – and the impact it will have on both RNLI staff and the public.
