Monday 27th June 2022 15:40 EDT

A 7-year-old girl from Nottingham has won the Child of Britain Award in the environmental category.

The awards were held at JW Grosvenor Hotel in Park Lane and was a star-studded event with Eamonn Holmes presenting and Calum Scott performing.

Aleesha Gadhia, who has been working tirelessly contacting large companies and organisations asking them what they are doing for climate change, is now Cool Earth’s youngest ever ambassador and isn’t planning to stop there.

Aleesha has written to many influential people and has had responses from Sir David Attenborough, Her Majesty the Queen, PM Boris Johnson and some others.

She is planning to tackle climate change by taking to social media and uploading videos on what companies and children can do to help with the problem.

Aleesha is visiting a large recycling centre in the next few weeks to see what happens to plastic when we sort it and send it off.

Her next step is to raise more awareness, write many more letters and change the world, one piece of plastic at a time.
