That this House notes the voice and real concerns of young people on climate change and the future of the planet and of human-kind; recognises the latest warnings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the need for urgent radical action to minimise the catastrophic impacts of climate change; calls on the Government to increase the 2050 Greenhouse Gas emission reduction target in the Climate Change Act from 80 per cent to 100 per cent; asks the Government to meet representatives of the UK Student Climate Network and consider their demands for the Government to declare a climate emergency, to prioritise the protection of life on Earth, to take active steps to achieve climate justice, to reform the national curriculum to address the ecological crisis as an educational priority, to communicate the severity of the ecological crisis and the need to act now to the general public and to recognise that young people have the biggest stake in our future by incorporating youth views into policy making and by reducing the voting age to 16; congratulates young people on taking a strong stand on this issue; and further calls on the Government to respond to those demands and to present a plan of action to the House by 31 May 2019.
