Climate champion Jason Sheehan

Jason Sheehan will be showing off his ‘Sustainable Stories’ project at Nottingham Cathedral on Saturday July 8 and Sunday July 9.

The 21-year-old will be showcasing photos he took in Portugal as part of his role as a climate champion.

He said: “I spent a gap year with CAFOD in Zimbabwe and the children there did a similar photo exhibition and this is what inspired me to do it.

“I am really into photography and it is a great tool to share stories.

“I hope to make a difference at a local level, otherwise there would be no progression. I hope to create some action to fight climate change.”
