Earlier this month two of Woodcraft Folk’s young members Maddy Taylor & Seren Waite joined MP Luke Pollard to discuss the climate emergency. Both spoke online as part of an event hosted by Co-operative Party’s Youth Network.
The meeting explored the importance of the climate emergency, expectations of COP26, what actions young people have been taking to address the climate emergency and their demands of senior politicians.
Seren shared her experience of teaching younger children about climate change and climate science through games and activities.
Maddy shared the need for action to address climate inequality.
Luke Pollard was delighted to be inspired by young people. After Maddy and Seren spoke he called upon all members of the public to hold decision makers to account. Many are hoping to make COP26 the only successful COP with agreed action.
