Calling all young people who want to speak out for the environment

Calling all young people who want to speak out for the environment

On Friday 15th November, Cheshire Wildlife Trust is hosting a Wild Question Time at the University of Chester’s Parkgate Road Campus. The event starts at 5:30pm and is a chance for 16-25 year olds to pose questions, about the environment, to sitting MPs, councillors and parliamentary candidates.

Across the country, young people are leading the way in championing environmental issues. Climate strikes and young spokespeople demonstrate that the younger generation want to see change in the way political leaders respond to environmental concerns. The Trust believes it is important that these environmentally minded individuals are given a say in their future.

The event is part of The Wildlife Trust’s Wilder Futures campaign which hopes to create stronger environmental legislation to help restore Cheshire’s natural environment. Panellists so far include: Independent MP, Antoinette Sandbach; Green Party councillor, Paul Bowers; Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate, Daniella Parker and wildlife journalist Lucy McRobert with Labour and Conservative panellists to be confirmed.

The debate promises to be interactive with live question voting on the night in addition to preselected audience question submissions.
