SHE stole the show on a top political TV debate and made headlines across the country.

Now Glasgow’s answer to Swedish climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg has her own thoughts and hopes on they city can make the most of being named the host of a major world summit.

Fifteen year-old Erin Curtis said this is just the start of something big.

She said: “I really hope that politicians can agree to take the critical action that we desperately need to in order to prevent uncontrollable climate change.

“However if they think that hosting COP26 in Glasgow is going to placate Scottish climate strikers, they’ve got another thing coming.

“We aren’t going to stop speaking up until climate justice is achieved. It’s time for them to step up and do what’s right.”

South Sider Erin rose to prominence earlier this year in an appearance on a BBC debate with the prime ministerial candidates, Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, Sajid Javid, Michael Gove and Rory Stewart.

Unimpressed by “non-committal” responses, Erin, who had challenged those in the running on their plans to meet a target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2025, told all five candidates they did not come close to offering the “drastic change” needed to tackle the impending climate emergency.

With 58% of Glaswegians believing it is essential that we all stand together to support the youth climate strikers, on the back of the growing public support for transformative political action and the principles of a Green New Deal, the world is set to witness the largest ever Global Climate Strike on September 20.

At present, more than a million people are expected to take to the streets in the UK on the day, just ahead of the UN Climate Summit on September 23, sending a clear message about the need for immediate action.

“September 20 is an opportunity of huge importance”, said Erin. “This is a chance for older generations to stand in solidarity with the youth and demonstrate that we are not alone in our fight for a better world. It’s time for all of us to come together and unite in tackling the climate crisis.”
