YOUNG people are being encouraged to help shape their future by getting involved in the Highland Climate Change Conference 2021 over the holidays.

The conference, which is taking place online on Thursday 21 and Friday 22 October, might be far from the scale of the COP26 international climate conference in Glasgow next month, but it is a great opportunity for young people to learn more about the climate and ecological emergency said the council.

They will hear how they can take action in Highland, and share their views at the associated workshops.

Chairwoman of Highland Council's Climate Change Working Group, Cllr Trish Robertson, said: "Young people are valuable contributors to climate action and the council recognises the creativity, values and energy of young people which are vital for continuing climate and ecological action in Highland."
