‘We are the change, and change is coming whether you like it or not.’ The famous photograph of schoolgirl Greta Thunberg outside Parliament in her first ever climate strike resonated with millions around the world. Since then, the power of youth to enact change has become an unstoppable force. Our collective of Young Activists, Daze Aghaji, Tolmeia Gregory, Alex Staniforth, Joycelyn Longdon and Dara McAnulty talk to campaigner and author Gina Martin about their inspiring work raising awareness in everything from sustainability to mental health, and to explore why this generation is taking the lead when it comes to tackling the biggest issues of our time.

This event will be live-streamed for free and available on-demand via the CheltSciFest Player. To register, click here.
