Campaign: To educate and empower young people to help tackle climate change

I’m lucky enough to live on the doorstep of the New Forest, which I think is a beautiful place.

For several years now, I've been passionate about protecting our environment and helping to stop climate change, and I believe that if every individual did their bit, we could have a really positive impact on the world.

I'm working with Fixers to create an animated film to prove this point. I want to show that it only takes small changes to make a big difference.

I hope my campaign will encourage people to think more carefully about the effect their actions have on the planet - perhaps considering things like recycling and choosing to buy products that use environmentally-friendly ingredients.

Dominique Hocking, Ethan Coventry and Lucy Carter have helped me with this Fix.
