Children come to St Paul's to take on Climate Week Challenge

change. It is for all age groups, it is free to take part, and the winners get to see their idea developed to the next stage. Last year over
130,000 people took part all across the UK - winning entries included a new style of eco-fridge using thermo-acoustic technology, and a special
