Calling all 6 – 18 year old’s in the Greater Reading Area – what do you want say about looking after our planet?

If you’re between 6 and 18 and are passionate about art and climate change, Reading Area Green Christians want to hear your voice and see your artwork!

Reading Area Green Christians are hosting a free exhibition of young peoples art at Reading Minster this summer. This years theme is ‘For the Future Act Now’ and is calling for drawings or mixed media work that shows what you want the government, industry, businesses etc… to do to combat climate change. What are your demands and pledges?

Moreover, Reading Area Green Christians are then hoping to take the art work to COP26 in November. COP26 is a huge United Nations climate conference, where world leaders meet to make plans to tackle the climate crisis.
