“We do not want to inherit a diminished planet, as it often seems we are being asked to, and this is a huge step towards ensuring a sustainable and equitable future for our and subsequent generations.”(Tom Youngman, Youth Panel member)
- a fair deal for young people in the decision-making process;
- work to ensure that Government does not lock young and future generations into ecological debt; and
- continued engagement in dialogue with the youth constituency and stakeholdership to ensure that the youth perspective is heard, and responded to, by Government.
“The report is the start of a sustainable long term journey that will hopefully inspire all generations to be curious about the complexities and politics of the energy mix. DECC has given us a platform and a voice and in return we are committed to encouraging a movement among all generations in understanding our role within that energy mix."
