In your view, what do our leaders here in Wales, the UK and around the world need to do to solve climate change?
We need people to work together – from communities to businesses to the public sector. We need to do this in a way that respects difference but that seeks to find a common aim – that is, the betterment of society and the natural world where future generations of people and nature have a future.
Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?
There are many ways to listen and being an ambassador is one way to hear over 10,000 voices in Wales – what a great ambition!
As a nation, what do you feel we need to do to truly influence change?
Keep inequality on the agenda, keep everyday experiences on the agenda, and continually look for practical and positive solutions – from the tiny everyday gestures that for example value the dandelions growing in the cracks in your pavement, to the major policy changes that seek net zero for Wales.
What makes you optimistic for the future with regards to climate change?
There is a strong evidence base that tells us that despite their fears and worries, people remain optimistic about the extended future. That makes it possible to work with people in an ongoing way about a range of positive solutions
