Our planet is facing a global climate emergency.  Temperatures are rising, and so are our sea levels, putting nature and humans at huge risk.

But amidst this crisis, there is a beacon of hope: Wales’ incredible young people who are doing everything they can to build a better, more sustainable world.

Across the country, young people are taking action on climate change. They’re not just leading by example in their communities by grabbing a litter picker or reusable cup; these inspiring individuals are also picking up their cameras, phones and laptops to drive online campaigns that spark conversation and encourage sustainable action.

We want to hear about these young people and the work that they are doing.

With thanks to our category sponsor Blake Morgan LLP.
