Fourth year Lawrence Dew has set up a youth climate action group in his home town of Watlington. Lawrence set up the group for the volunteering element of his Duke of Edinburgh award. Talking to the local paper, The Henley Standard, Lawrence said, “I wanted to get more young people involved and to make the action group more welcoming for people my age.
