Climate Week Update: Climate Kids Meet Cabinet Ministers
Winners of Climate Change Competition

14 March, 2012 - As part of Climate Week (12-18 March 2012), Energy and Climate Change Secretary Edward Davey and Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman met five winners aged between 8 and 12 of the National Geographic Kids magazine climate change competition, and listened to what they had to say about climate change and what they want the world to look like in 2050.

The competition winners met the two Cabinet ministers at the Science Museum’s Planet Science exhibit, a striking animated globe that shows how the world looks from an astronaut’s perspective. It displays large-scale animations of real satellite data which reveal how climate change affects the world.
