London 2015 – day two, part one 22 Oct 2015

Sunrise over the River Thames was nearly as beautiful as it is over Constantine this morning. Everyone slept well and after a breakfast of cereal, toast and fruit we braved the rush hour tube to the Palace of Westminster. We completed a tour, which included observing the debate in the House of Commons about energy security and learning about the House of Lords in a virtual reality room with 360 degree projection, and are now in a workshop where we are making a new law and following the process for how it is ratified.

Suggestions so far include improving cycling laws so it is safer for all; enforcing a licence for all cyclists over the age of 12; raising the age for drinking to 20 years; and not having school uniforms…

Photos below include seeing the statue of Emiline Pankhurst, the virtual reality classroom and the Making Laws workshop.
