Straight after an intense Board Meeting, on the evening 27th, the Bus Tour made its way to the UK on the Eurostar. Along with the permanent team, Board Members Hreidar Mar Arnason and Jessie Seal visited ESSA, giving two workshops on the Declaration and how UK students can use it as a basis for campaigning.
Salil Bhate, ESSA’s Vice-Chairperson was our guide and we had the time to visit two very different schools. One was a democratic school in rural Devon, which gave us an idea of the different education systems that are possible. The other school was a Boys Grammar school in Essex provided a great group of 14 and 15 years olds who spent the hour and a half coming up with local campaigns based around the Rights.
