Young people should have as much say as adults, if not more, when it comes to finding the solutions to the world’s problems.
I’m currently an eco monitor at school and am part of a campaign to get more children walking to school or using bicycles. I’ve designed a flyer to give to parents to stop them idling their engines outside school so we can improve air quality.
I’ve also encouraged my friends to recycle their crisp packets using the special recycling scheme our eco team designed, and have challenged friends and family to live plastic-free for a week.
