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 the government should introduce a set of new laws for the public which would include large fines for littering, and a rewards scheme for those who use other means of transport (rather than cars/buses/taxis). Instead of building massive estates or shopping centres on our beautiful fields that cows and sheep once inhabited, we should encourage more wildlife to reign over the fields, and preserve the animals of today. As well as this, I believe allotments should become a common part of the villages and towns of Wales, so people may grow and harvest their own vegetables and fruits.

Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?

I am very passionate about the world we live in today, and how it is slipping away from us at an undeniably fast rate. I am also vegetarian, a plant lover, and think that I am one of many individuals who are able to help as I am not afraid to stand up for it. I believe that climate change is quite possibly the biggest issue for society today. Climate change has been neglected throughout history, but should not be any longer, due to the relentless studies and science that is now present to inform us of the dire situation we are trapped in.

As a nation, what do you feel we need to do to truly influence change?

By recognising the issue of climate change in our society, we can allow time to act, before it is truly too late. We have one planet, and one chance at this. We have to learn from the mistakes of previous generations, and become the most eco-friendly generation yet! Working collectively, we can achieve this!

What makes you optimistic for the future with regards to climate change?

I am optimistic due to: more people changing to plant-based diets such as vegan/vegetarian, cars running on other fuels rather than diesel/petrol, so electric cars are more frequent in society, and people being educated on climate change from a young age.
