A PUPIL at Redland Green School is off to an international conference called Planet Under Pressure.

Dan McKimm, pictured, is one of only 12 UK students selected to attend the London event on March 26.

Dan, 16, who is studying biology, PE, economics and English language A-levels at the North Bristol Post-16 Centre, said: "There are high-up decision makers coming to the conference from all over the world, so it'll be really interesting to get to meet them and hear what they have to say about what we are going to do to protect our planet."

Mike Farmer, director of finance and administration at the school, said: "We are all really proud of Dan. I think the conference will prove a real inspiration to him."

Redland Green School has recently formed a student eco committee and is working towards Eco School status.
