New 'gang of four' aiming to improve Guernsey for future generations


Four sixth form students are taking on the States, industry leaders, economists, environmentalists and more - with plans to shape the future of Guernsey.

The head boy of Elizabeth College; Adam Sparkes and Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre students Tom Rylatt, Pieter Durman and Cameron Ashplant are running a seminar this weekend looking at sustainability with plans to run similar events focusing on other topics in the future.

They say they are running the event themselves and despite taking advice from some organisations it is an entirely independent set up.

The first event they are planning will be held on Saturday 17 March at St James and aims to promote sustainable practices that will improve the well-being of current and future generations. They already have plans to hold future events discussing the economy, education, connectivity and other key issues. 

The four students say they wanted the event to feature talks from experts alongside live music in a friendly atmosphere. They say this will help to encourage conversation between attendees and they want it to be informal with talks as well as speeches.

Future Generations

The event is being held at St James on Saturday 17 March, between 13:00 and 16:00.

It is free entry to all.
