The Young People's Trust for the Environment is a charity set up to encourage young people's understanding of the environment. Founded in 1982, it aims to give young people an awareness of environmental issues such as climate change, pollution, deforestation and endangered flora and fauna. It also aims to provide balanced views to take into account the realities of the modern world. Young people need to know all of the facts in order to make their own decisions about how they want to shape their world for the future. www.ypta.org.uk

Imogen and Rose presented their charity in assembly at both Houses and explained that they chose the charity because they are passionate about wanting to make people more aware of how we need to look after our environment and they are particularly concerned about plastic pollution and climate change.
