Sarah Crudgington- Climate Change Champion
DEFRA’s ‘Climate Change Champion’ initiative was set up to encourage people to speak out for the environment and take action on the pressing issue of climate change. Nine young people were selected to represent each of the regions of England. I was chosen for the East of England region, and David Saddington represented the North-East. The nine of us made a formidable team and it was our responsibility to spread the word about climate change, and encourage others to take action against it. We saw firsthand the effects that climate change is having on glaciers in Switzerland and met many glaciologists and professors during our 5 day trip there. We all supported one another in presenting to large audiences in London, and in our respective regions. Personal highlights from my time as a champion include presenting at a WWF Sustainability Conference at Westminster Hall and presenting to an audience about the work of the champions at an event held at the BT Tower with David Miliband.
