Ahead of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram has met with young people from across the Liverpool City Region to listen to their thoughts on a range of environment-related issues.
At the meeting, young people taking part in NCS (National Citizen Service), and drawn from groups across the Liverpool City Region, talked about the changes they believe will be needed for the region to reduce emissions and reach net zero carbon by 2040.
They looked specifically at changes that will be needed in the home, in how people get around, in our neighbourhoods, and in the world of work, before spending an hour outlining their ideas to the Mayor and asking him questions about his green agenda.
The young people are all participants in the NCS Changemakers programme, which enables young people to design and deliver meaningful social action projects to have a positive and long-standing impact in their local area. This year a key theme for Changemakers across the whole country has been environmental issues.
