Julian Smith MP attended a workshop on climate change at Skipton Girls High School last week, hosted by Hope for the Future.
The students had prepared presentations on the climate change issues that most concerned them, including renewable energy and clean air zones. The students then engaged Mr Smith in a question and answer session on these issues, as well as his role as MP. They also heard from Julian Smith on the role of the government in tackling climate change, and particularly the Government’s 25 Year Plan to improve the Environment, announced in January 2018.
Julian Smith MP said, ‘It was a pleasure to meet with such an insightful group of students. I was pleased to listen to their thoughtful concerns, and I am delighted to see a group of young people so engaged with politics.’
