Polly speaks out about climate change on BBC News

22 February 2021

A few weeks ago, I saw that a BBC Religion Journalist, Sophia Smith Galer, was asking to speak to young Christians who care about the planet. I expressed my interest and she saw that I had spoken about my faith before on platforms such as my podcast. For me, the climate and environment is something I am passionate about and I would love to see the Church to be part of the movement to help reduce climate change and look after the environment. I was fortunate to speak along-side Pope Francis, Justin Welby (the Archbishop of Canterbury), climate experts and like-minded young people. I would encourage others to both learn about the climate but also look for opportunities where they can speak out on issues they care about.
