How you can ask Boris Johnson a question about the climate challenge
Selected entries will be offered the chance to visit London to have their say in person or have their video questions played at the press conference.
What would you ask the UK Government about how it is going to solve the current climate crisis?
Or do you want to put forward your ideas for solutions to environmental issues?
Send written or video questions, filmed on a phone, via the first.news/younguk website.
And you can tell world leaders what action you would take to help your planet.
