Pupils from Camden primary schools joined climate and environmental workshops and pitched ideas for green projects in their schools to a Dragons' Den panel.

The Green Dragons' Den event was held at Camden Collective on 21 March by Camden Climate Alliance, Think & Do Camden, the Camden Clean Air Initiative and Camden Learning.

More than 70 pupils attended across the day, with nine primary schools pitching their projects in person, and a further three submitting video entries.

The Green Dragons' Den panellists consisted of representatives from Camden Youth Council, Troup Bywaters + Anders, Revolt, Camden Market owners LabTech and innovative climate start-ups based out of Camden Collective.

The following businesses have provided funds in excess of £5,500 to help schools deliver on their projects: Anthesis, St George PLC, Phoenix Court, Troup Bywaters + Anders, Royal Veterinary College, Argent, Sheppard Robson, CBRE and the Knowledge Quarter.
