Over the past 12 months we have seen a rising crescendo of young voices from around the world calling for urgent action to tackle climate change and habitat and species destruction.
From Chris Packham’s Walk for Wildlife to Greta Thurnberg addressing the United Nations Climate Change Summit and the European Parliament to school climate change strikes in towns and cites around the world to Extinction Rebellion, we have seen thousands of young people start to put huge pressure on political and business leaders to stop the destruction of our precious planet.
But what do the decision makers of tomorrow think about the state of the planet they are growing up on and how will they make decisions in their future lives which will avoid the mistakes of their parents generation, when it comes to tackling climate change, protecting the natural world and wildlife at home and abroad ?
The Question Time panel will bring together 5 leading young campaigners, writers, bloggers and broadcasters who are giving a voice to the next generation when it comes to speaking up for the protection of wildlife and the natural world. The panel will take questions from an audience made up of both young people and adults from across Britain and around the world.
