“I feel that Climate Change is a very real issue that simply isn’t taken seriously enough and I think that if everyone works together, we can make a positive difference to our futures and our planet”
In your view, what do our leaders here in Wales, the UK and around the world need to do to solve climate change?
I think that leaders need to prioritise tackling Climate Change and make a point of informing the public that Climate Change is real and each and every citizen has a responsibility to do what they can to prevent it.
Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?
I have become a Climate.Cymru Ambassador in order to influence change at a higher level. I feel that by bringing together like-minded people of all ages and backgrounds from across Wales who all have the same goal, the Climate.Cymru network has a real chance of creating positive change to our country.
As a nation, what do you feel we need to do to truly influence change?
I feel that Climate Change is a very real issue that simply isn’t taken seriously enough and I think that if everyone works together and makes even small changes to their everyday lives, we can make a positive difference to our futures and our planet.
What makes you optimistic for the future with regards to climate change?
Events like COP26 where World leaders come together to discuss what more can be done to tackle Climate Change.
