Tom with his fellow Climate Champions

Tom said: “The reason I applied to be a Climate Champion is because climate change is something that I feel really passionate about.

 
“I know it is a problem that needs addressing and I hope I am able to help in doing that. I want to be able to inspire others to feel as passionately about the environment as I do.
 
“I can’t wait to head off to Brussels!”
