Improving our local environment was an issue that local young people identified at the WDYC launch event in September. This is also an issue that was identified by young people across Scotland within the Scottish Youth Parliament, who have now launched a national campaign called ‘Pack it up, Pack it in’ (Environmental protection). A massive well done to all of the young people who took part in this event, all of your hard work will be put towards a Saltire Award and recorded as part of the Keep Scotland Beautiful Upstream Battle survey which aims to tackle marine litter.
