Project Description

Lily Macfarlane

Age 15, England

I have found social action around the environment challenging at times because my peers do not always understand their impact on the Earth, or even care. This is why I want to engage young people with the problem so more take up social action to tackle problems, especially in single-use plastics.

An Action for Conservation Ambassador, I have made a video explaining why young people should care about the plastic crisis and am proud it has been shared both in Britain and abroad. I also volunteer in my local community, developing a biodiverse and beautiful garden for everyone to enjoy.
