MY KEY ISSUES ARE:
Our future and education
Litter and recycling
Hello my name is Aled Joseph, I'm 13 years old and come from Caerphilly. I attend Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni. I want to be part of the youth parliament because I have been on the school council for years and now I want to help convey the voice of young people about more important issues and issues regarding our future! If I'm chosen to represent you, I want to give more money towards cycling safety and create more cycling routes to protect children when cycling to school.
Also litter! Litter is a big problem in our communities and I think that we should change recycling to make it easier for everyone. Finally, I want to talk about Brexit. Because in the future, young people like us will want to get jobs or go to university in Europe, and the impact of Brexit will lessen our choices. I have experience of expressing my opinion and speaking in an official capacity with adults as part of the school council and as a member of the Scouts.
