The Chair of Lewes District Council has given Green United his full support after taking part in the BIG ASK, an event where young people presented their ideas for environmental action to key decision makers, organisations and others stakeholders in Lewes district.
Councillor Adrian Ross, Chair of Lewes District Council, joined over 100 young people to hear their ideas and their ‘asks’ for support from the community.
Councillor Ross said:
“The BIG ASK gave young people the space to be innovative and come up with ideas that are realistic and achievable, all presented brilliantly to an audience that can help facilitate the necessary action.”
Green United was launched two years ago and involves students, parents and teachers from schools, colleges and universities, alongside community decision makers such as local councillors, giving them all a voice in the work needed to address the climate emergency.
Councillor Ross added:
“There are so many like-minded young people in the district, many doing an incredible amount of great work to bring about the change we need to make.
“Green United is one superb example of many initiatives and projects that I fully support and is in perfect harmony with the tremendous work being done by through the council’s Climate Action Forum.”
