The Children's Climate Change Project 2008 was brought together by WWF Scotland, The Children's Parliament and Children in Scotland, to engage young people in the global debate on climate change and particularly the national debate on the Scottish Climate Change Bill being developed by Scottish Government. The project was supported by Scottish Government and the Scottish Commissioner for Children and Young People. Twenty MCPs (Members of the Childrens Parliament) aged between 9-14 years old the Western Isles, Fife, Edinburgh and South Ayrshire formed the core group. The children also engaged with children and adults back in their home communities. The mural captures the views of children. More information available at http://scotland.wwf.org.uk
