This was one topic that was discussed at a special conference organised by the British Council Wales to encourage and empower year 12 pupils to become ChangeMakers within their schools. The pupils left the conference with plenty of ideas of how they could share the knowledge and experiences they gained at the conference with their friends, families and pupils at the school.

The pupils made personal pledges such as:
- to not waste food by only buying and cooking the food that they need;
- to purchase FairTrade food;
- to record how much food their family wastes and encourage them to waste less.
|Pupils worked together to discuss ideas and to put a plan together for school-wide pledges|
