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

Our world leaders need to put aside their differences and actively work together and use their power to regulate and implement climate policies that put emphasise on combating the climate and ecological crisis, and aiding countries on front line in the global south, paying reparations for the exploitation and colonialization of those countries?

Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?

I am passionate about campaigning for climate justice, there are so many people across the world, predominately affected by the climate crisis right now and is not just an issue affecting future generations. I want to do what I can do educate and inform people of the systemic and global issues that perpetuate the climate crisis and give young people the skills and knowledge needed for jobs of the future.

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

Engage with communities and people that are usually disregarded in conversations around the climate crisis and give a platform for those marginalised groups to have a voice in shaping change.

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

I am optimistic about the collective power of united activists and campaigners working together to achieve our aligned objectives in the fight against the climate crisis. Only united we can achieve our goals!
