Emily Ford started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister) and

Politics is dividing the country. We are facing an environmental crisis and young people are the only voices that may be loud enough to be heard. To be heard by the few who were chosen to represent them by all those who are older.

Greta Thumberg has inspired change all around the world and she is an inspiration to thousands, if not millions, if not billions of people. Greta Thumberg is 16. In this country she wouldn't be allowed to vote. She has forced change all around the world, yet she is not trusted with a ballot paper to contribute her voice to our future. There are many others like Greta who care about our future, not just in climate change but in all the aspects of the next generation which will effect us. I believe that we deserve a voice.

At 16, you are allowed by law in England to have a baby. You are allowed to be trusted with another human life yet you are not to be trusted with a ballot paper. For me, I see no reason why. Times have changed, and in this time where the politics today directly affect every single person who comes after us, I think we need a vote. I need a vote. This is not just their future. It is all of ours, and I believe that we all deserve a say.

If you agree with me, if you want the voice for our future because we deserve one, please I urge you to sign this petition. Thank you.
