The Scottish Children’s Parliament provides opportunities for children aged from 9 to 14 years old to engage in local, national and international democratic processes.
The Parliament has been working with WWF Scotland in a Climate Change Project which gave children an opportunity to learn more about Scotland’s changing climate in the light of the Climate Change Bill which was then going through the Scottish Parliament. The Bill received Royal Assent on 9th August 2009 and is now the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009.
We are pleased, with permission from the Scottish Children’s Parliament, to provide a link to a video produced as part of that project. In it, members of the Scottish Children’s Parliament give their views on climate change and how to tackle it.
