Last Wednesday was probably the most environmentally important day of my life so far. Thousands of people and their charities all flocked to London heading for Westminster for a mass rally part of 'The time is Now' movement.
I travelled down with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust in a bid to try and persuade politicians to change the system, to try and slow down the rate to which climate change is damaging our planet to a point from which it may never recover if global action is not undertaken now. The future for the generations to follow is one of extreme uncertainty.
I had some great conversations with some of the conservation organisations who were present. The WWF, RSPB and many Wildlife Trusts from around the country. As well are these there were so many other organisations present all with the same agenda.
I felt that it was a very positive event with so many young people present. Like me they hope and dream that their collective voices will be listened to.
