Discussing Brexit with French schoolchildren

On 8 April 2019 I met with a group of French schoolchildren while they visited London and Oxford, accompanied by staff from their school near Lyon. One of the teachers there (Anna Demoux) is the Treasurer of an international conference I run (details available here). We met outside the Natural History Museum, and they had prepared questions to ask me about the parliamentary system here in England. They also had some very real concerns about the impact of Brexit on European relations and the worrying rise in mainstream nationalism.

It was wonderful to have chance to talk to young people about their concerns for their future – and for the potential impact of loss of freedom of movement on young people in the UK.

Our very own #EUSuperGirl also came along! She delighted them with songs about Brexit and spent plenty of time chatting with them (in French!) – and taking selfies. A wonderful way to spend a lunch hour!
