We received lots of great submissions for a logo for the Youth Climate Summit, and we're really pleased to announce that the logo that we'll be using was submitted by 11 year old Lucy from Newcastle.
We spoke with Lucy about school, sustainability and the upcoming summit.
What year are you in at school?
Actually I don't go to school, I've never been to school - I'm home educated so I don't really know school years. But my mum says I would be going into Year 7 in September.
What's your favourite subject and why?
Because I'm not at school I learn about the things I'm really interested in. At the moment that's climate change, animals and the environment, feminism and art.
What do you find most exciting about the environment?
I love the variety of animal species on the planet - they're so varied, special and unique. I find that really fascinating.
Why do you think everyone needs to get involved in sustainability?
We're all in this together - to make things change we need everyone to be on board. Individuals can only do so much.
What would you like to happen because of the youth climate summit?
I'd love it if lots of kids went away and pestered their parents to change. I'd also like to see as much commitment from the government to fighting climate change as there has been to fighting Covid. As Greta said "Our house is on fire."
I'm very passionate about protecting the environment, but my passion isn't enough because I'm a kid. We need adults to act and act now, later isn't good enough.
