I put climate justice, but we need to focus on far more than that. A just transition to a zero carbon world includes equality, equity, the phasing-out of capitalism (the system which got us into this mess in the first place), a significant increase in climate and nature-based education, and, importantly, the creation of new green jobs for workers in sectors such as the oil industry.

I think homelessness is a big issue that needs to be addressed.

I think that the UK should either focus on the climate as pollution is really affecting the country and the world. Since lockdown, pollution rates went down a lot but I think that people aren’t going to keep the rates down. Although, I also think that the government should focus on things like crime in small cases and in national circumstances. Both issues have affected a lot of people which is why I think the government and the UK should work on it after lockdown.

After lockdown, we should appreciate how lucky we are
to actually go to school and see our friends, I think that
schools should give 1 more week of holiday to go abroad
and finally, airlines should be giving extra flights so that
everyone has a chance to go on holiday. All in all, My point
is to try and have a normal summer holiday.
Happy Summer Holidays!

Climate change I think is this biggest one. Black Lived Matter and homelessness is obviously a big problem, but first we have to make sure we can ALL live without getting sick from the air, and we need to protect other species. Anyway, hopefully Black Lives Matter will be resolved soon

I think the most important thing to do after the pandemic is to focus on the climate because even though we have to wear masks and gloves some of these go into our oceans and harm ocean life.

It wouldn't let me put in my proper age, so I said 12.

We should thank everyone, from the frontline NHS workers to the people that were staying at home.

oceangirl · 7 months ago

We should also tackle climate change, because that is also a pandemic!

sarah.m · 7 months ago

the UK is in such a state. The only thing that with pull it together and fix the mess is if we get a good prime minister and I guess the best time for this to all happen is for when covid-19 is over

sarah.m · 7 months ago

Appreciate family and friends. Put down gadgets, rest from work and meet up. Getting together we can discuss things like the environment or how we can help our communities then act. Lockdown has made me realise what we take for granted and miss being outside.

binbag · 7 months ago

I think we should become more healthier and excersize more like we have been in lockdown

lunagrang · 7 months ago

aok · 7 months ago

I hope I get chosen!!!😀😀

radnorgirl · 6 months ago

I care really strongly for the environment as well as local businesses so I hope that the government will try really hard to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and recover small shops. It can be done as we’ve seen it happen thanks to lockdown.

Please put my answer in first news as I would love for people to know my opinion...
I feel like I’m speaking for kids out there who feel the same.

radnorgirl · 6 months ago

I think they should tackle racism as well. People are finally seeing change and they do not want that to stop.🦾🦾
