The Welsh Assembly Government are looking for the new Climate Change Champions for 2011.

Do you believe young people should have a say in Wales?
Do you want to help make sure we protect Wales for future generations – and learn new skills at the same time?
Do you want to appear on television, have your own news column and blog?
If you’re aged 14-18, why not become a Climate Change Champion and make a difference.

Sebastian Giraud-Jones, Climate Change Champion 2010 said:

“Being a champion has been a truly amazing experience, not only has it further opened my eyes to the increasing threat that is posed by climate change to our planet, but the experiences that i have gathered over my year in office has been truly fantastic. I have met so many interesting people ranging from delegates at the Climate Change commission and Ministers to local school children. I can really look back at the end of my term and feel that I might just made done a difference.”
This year we are asking you to answer 4 questions either through a speech or PowerPoint presentation.
