Amy Mount, North London"I think a young person’s perspective is really important on environmental issues. We are the people alive today who will feel most the impacts of climate change and wasteful use of natural resources."

"I studied geography, and I feel that has given me an insight into the way human beings approach their relationship with the earth and the raw materials and food it provides. It has also given me the passion to campaign for laws to curb carbon emissions, lobby government and companies to change their actions and policies, and to take a responsible approach to what I buy."

"Sustainable Fish City seems like a great initiative because it will make influential buyers in London really have to think about the impact of what they choose to spend their money on. I'd like to see big food companies and caterers treating their buying like investment - you're investing for a future in which there will still be enough fish for people to eat, and also a future for the wildlife and ecosystems that rely on them. Take action now. It's the only sensible thing to do."

Amy volunteers with the UK Youth Climate Coalition. She also featured in a recent Observer article about young people's concerns about the future.

Taking a sustainable approach to fish is critical to the food security of our city. It is shocking to think that within our lifetimes, we could lose some of our favourite species from the seas forever.
