Duncan joins Parliament in the Park

Duncan attended Parliament in the Park, where he met with young people to discuss local environmental issues.

Speaking at the event Duncan said:

“This is the last Parliament that can make decisions in time to prevent the worst consequences of climate change.

“I would be really pleased to meet with young people in Wiltshire who are concerned for our future, and who want Parliament to take action before it’s too late.”

The ‘Adopt an MP’ campaign aims to encourage conversations between young people and MPs. Issues that have been raised by young people so far include cycle lanes, recycling and youth-led community projects.

Duncan continued:

“Although many stories focus on climate change as an international issue, it affects us all and I would welcome any ideas that young people have about what we could be doing in our constituency.”

Young people interested in the campaign should visit the ‘Adopt an MP’ website www.adoptanmp.org, where you can create a profile, connect with other trackers and contact your MP.
