In your view, what do our leaders here in Wales, the UK and around the world need to do to solve climate change?
They need to be more ambitious and innovative with policies that take direct action at making a positive impact on people’s lives. Things such as green transport options are vital as well as moving quickly to develop the necessary technology for improved versions of electric and hybrid vehicles. A plastic and glass bottle return scheme should also be prioritised to be rolled out along the same capacity as EU nations.
Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?
I would like to promote the agenda of Climate Cymru and engage with ongoing discussions of how to improve policy and action within government bodies.
As a nation, what do you feel we need to do to truly influence change?
Pressure the political parties to adopt cross party climate policies that are then guaranteed to get support and thus be implemented.
What makes you optimistic for the future with regards to climate change?
The current social mobility that has gathered around climate change and environmental policy.
