In your view, what do our leaders here in Wales, the UK and around the world need to do to solve climate change?

I am sure that there are many things we need to do, but I am a big believer that ‘local’ is the key. We need to change our practises, realign ourselves with the planet, we need to slow ourselves down and re connect with nature/creation. We need to really think about what as humans we need to survive and compare that to what we in the west actually have.

Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?

I believe that part of my calling as an ordained priest is to lead the way in making a difference to the planet and to those who are being oppressed and neglected as a result of climate change. Being an ambassador for Climate Cymru will be one way in which I can fulfil that part of my calling.

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

I think our collective voice has the capacity to drive change. Wales needs to speak loudly, and we need to do it soon.

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

The sheer enthusiasm from people around me to make a change.
