    Better By Bus is teaming up with National Museums Liverpool to give young people of the Liverpool City Region the opportunity to be heard in the debate on climate change.



    Young people, aged 5-16, who are based in Liverpool, Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens, or Wirral, are invited to submit an original artwork or poem which responds to themes and raises awareness of issues surrounding climate change, to be featured as part of an exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool in March.

    The initiative is part of a wider campaign from Better By Bus, entitled ‘We can’t wait to tackle climate change’, which has been encouraging people in the Liverpool City Region to travel by bus rather than car. The campaign highlights how buses in the city region are cleaner, greener, more accessible, and have more benefits (including free Wi-Fi), than people may think.

    An impressive 70% of buses in the Liverpool Bus Alliance, made up of Arriva, Stagecoach and Merseytravel, run on electric, hybrid or low emission engines, which makes them one of the greenest fleets in the UK. When a single double decker bus can take up to 75 cars off the road, in turn easing congestion and improving air quality, it’s time to make the change to a more sustainable way of getting around.

    A shortlist of 10 pictures and poems will be selected by a judging panel consisting of representatives from the Bus Alliance and National Museums Liverpool, shortly after the deadline for entries on 21st February 2020.

    The panel will be selecting works which they think most creatively raise awareness of the effects of climate change, and particularly those which focus on the issues we are experiencing here in the Liverpool City Region or that give suggestions on ways we can tackle the problem.

    The shortlist will be displayed at the Museum of Liverpool throughout March as part of their ‘Liverpool on wheels: from horses to horsepower’ exhibition, which opens to the public on 14th February 2020, entry is free.

    An overall winner will then be selected by the general public, following a round of voting which will take place at the exhibition. To cast a vote, simply visit the Better By Bus area of the ‘Liverpool on wheels: from horses to horsepower’ exhibition in the Museum of Liverpool between 3rd March and 31st March. The winner will be announced in early April and will be presented with a ‘We can’t wait to tackle climate change’ certificate as well as some very special prizes.

    To enter the competition, please visit: www.BetterByBus.org/GetCreative. If you are aged 16 or under, please ask parental permission before submitting any details. Entries can also be submitted via post using the following address: Better By Bus, Agent Marketing, 43 Jordan Street, Liverpool, L1 0BQ. Please ensure to include your name, email address and age information alongside a title and description of your work.

    Lisa Pearson, campaign conductor at Better By Bus, commented:

    “We’re excited to be working with National Museums Liverpool on this very special initiative, which will provide young local advocates for climate action with a vital platform to be heard. We’re looking forward to seeing their entries.

    “Better By Bus is asking young people of the Liverpool City Region to get involved with the campaign because it’s their futures that will be most affected by climate change. We’re at a critical stage where meaningful action is the only way we can prevent causing further damage to our planet. Hopefully, our young people can inspire other generations to get on board.

    “Climate change is a global issue, but by joining together as a city region, we can make a real difference. Thankfully our buses are leading the way in sustainability, with 70 per cent of our buses in the Bus Alliance powered by electric, hybrid or low emission engines, swapping the car for the bus is one of the easiest ways for people to reduce their carbon footprint.”

    Sharon Brown, Curator of Land Transport and Industry at National Museums Liverpool, commented:

    “Our exhibition Liverpool on wheels: from horses to horsepower explores our city’s proud transport history. We know our visitors will love the vehicles on display and we’re delighted to be working with Better By Bus to develop this element of the exhibition to bring it up to date and give young people of the region a voice within it.

    “The activism of young people across the world has had a major role in ensuring we all engage with the serious subject of climate change, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what the young people of Liverpool City Region have to say.”

    Great idea! It is after all their future here on this planet. Education as opposed to brain washing. Some idiot losers on this site would be teaching them the earth is flat and autism is caused by common childhood vaccinations as well as the old chestnut that the climate crisis isn’t real.

    The science is not proven, repeat is not proven!! read the IPCC reports for yourself. Even they say/use wording such as "likely", "Very Likely" etc etc which is not irrefutable fact which all science is based on. Science is based on it is or it isn't.

    Stop throwing cliche in such as "earth is flat" and "autism" chestnuts, a bit old hat don't you think?

    The better and more productive thing would be telling kids "how" to adapt to a changing climate either cooler or warmer, instead in making them believe they can stop it. Over 4.5 billion years of change ain't going to stop because of these actions!!!
