Stepping Up and Being Heard

Written by Cohort 2 BGF-er, Khadija


I participated in the #youthstrike4climate on Friday 15th March with my friends and the atmosphere and turnout was incredible not only in Birmingham - where we were, but across the UK and the world! It was so inspiring and such a relief to see so many like minded people, people who cared deeply about the environment and implementing action to prevent climate change from worsening as well as other environmental issues that we need to address.
