I think it's very important to talk about climate change, as it's about the future of Europe, it's about the future of our children. Climate change is a topic young people want to talk about. And I think the most important thing is to have a longterm political vision, so speaking with other local politicians is important to have a good plan for the future.

I think (it's important to talk about local climate action as) when services are delivered, and changes are made, everything ultimately is local. Each country is comprised of regions and local areas and that's where we deliver on the ground.

I think that climate change is something that's happening now. So if it's not up to the young politicians to take action in their respective countries – who will? It's our future that we need to take care of and I hope we haven't jeopardized it yet. So I think not just young elected politicians, but every young person should take action for what they see is happening in front of their eyes.
