Airth Primary, 9am Friday 22nd October 

Monica met with pupils from Airth Primary School to discuss their thoughts on climate action; 

“I strongly believe listening to, and engaging with, children and young people on the subject of climate action is an essential element of my role. 

“With the future of all of our lives being debated at COP26 next week, this is the generation that will most directly be affected by the decisions made there.”

Children at Balmalloch have been developing a polytunnel at their school, and were very interested in talking to Monica about where food comes from.
