The Unicef Ambassadors went to the Civic Centre in Enfield Town to meet the Mayor of Enfield, Kate Anolue in the Council Chambers. We spoke to her about our RRSA work and asked her questions about the actions that she was taking to support children's rights in Enfield. She told us that she believes that children have the power to change the world and that she is committed to supporting work to ensure that children's rights are respected in Enfield and around the world. We talked about sustainability and raised the issue of climate change. We shared some of our concerns about the amount of litter and fly tipping in Enfield and shared some things that we are doing to try to make the world a better place. She agreed with us and told us about some of the work being done in Enfield to encourage recycling, planting projects and keeping the area clean and tidy. The mayor also told us that she felt it was important for all of the residents of Enfield to take responsibility and make better choices to help with this issue. She told us that she had been born in Africa and had travelled to England where she had trained to become a midwife before becoming the Mayor of Enfield. We found her very inspirational and she congratulated us on being voices for others.
