This year to celebrate World Environment Day on 5th June, I launched a photography and drawing competition for young people in Feltham and Heston.
World Environment Day is a day dedicated for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. I launched this competition to raise awareness on the importance of taking care of the environment and to see Hounslow through the eyes of young people. Young people from across all age groups throughout the constituency took part, demonstrating that climate related issues are a top priority for both myself and the youth in Feltham & Heston.
I am so proud and overwhelmed by the number of entries we have received, showing just how passionate our young people are about caring for the environment. I want to thank my constituents and the young people who live in Feltham and Heston for all the work they do, campaigning on issues ranging from deforestation and badger culling to air pollution and everything in between.
I also would like to dedicate a big thank you to our expert panel of judges, who have kindly dedicated their time in helping us choose our winners!
A big thank you to:
- Jonty Fulford
- Carlo Di Caterino
- Cllr Samia Chaudhary
- Umme Khanzada
