Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has marked Earth Day 2022, and backed the new Young Climate Warriors initiative to get young people involved in protecting the planet.
Young Climate Warriors is a nationwide charity which supports teachers and families with high quality and thought-provoking climate change resources that are free, ready-to-use and include weekly age-appropriate carbon-cutting and sustainability challenges.
The new Ambassador Programme is being launched on 22nd April to coincide with Earth Day 2022. It will take Climate Change discussions into primary schools across the UK, with in-person animated assemblies helping teachers open the door to the subject, building wider awareness of the problem and sharing solutions to fixing it.
Commenting on the initiative, Andrew Gwynne said:
“I can’t think of a better way of marking Earth Day than by backing this fantastic initiative.
I have always believed in taking action to protect our planet. That’s one of the reasons I helped found Friends of the Tame Valley, and worked hard to keep our local area green and clean.
Young people are our future, and Young Climate Warriors will give them the tools and the resources they need to understand climate change, as well as possible solutions.
I would encourage any local primary schools that are interested to get involved. We can all make a difference.”
