Amy and Ella Meek (aged 14 and 12) set up their own campaign Kids Against Plastic a couple of years ago in order to raise awareness of the negative impact that single-use plastic is having on the environment – something that they are passionate about. They have visited schools, conferences and festivals and have spoken to politicians, school children, celebrities and academics around the world. More recently they travelled around the UK as land-based ambassadors for Exxpedition – a group of women sailing around the GB sampling for plastics in the oceans. They are hoping that more children will come and chat to them at the festival and also want to become a Kid Against plastic!
Amy and Ella will talking in the Children's cafe on both Saturday and Sunday but will also have an interactive information table on display where you can come to play games and learn more about this hot environmental topic.
