CLIMATE change minister Ed Miliband was in Hampstead today visiting the children of Fitzjohn's Primary School.
The Dartmouth Park resident said he is a regular Ham&High reader and as a child he once featured in a photograph in the paper playing backgammon with his brother David in a competition.
He joined Glenda Jackson MP on a visit to the school to see their solar panels and find out how the pupils are being green.
Mr Miliband held and Q&A with the youngsters and said: "Your generation is really clued up about the environment and being green and what I try to do is make sure we develop other ways of making energy such as wind power, solar power and nuclear power.
"One of the most important things you can do is to persuade people how important it is to protect the environment."
Later today Mr Miliband will be launching Camden Labour's manifesto at the Irish Centre in Camden Town.
