That the Parliament congratulates pupils from Windsor Park School, in Falkirk, and employees of Forth Valley Sensory Centre for designing and producing a comic book about climate change that is accessible to all; understands that the Climate Comic has been translated into British Sign Language (BSL) so that young people with hearing loss can enjoy and learn from it; notes that an audio description of the comic has been made available so it can be accessed by children with a visual impairment; understands that very few resources about climate change for children are translated into BSL or are made accessible to those with a visual impairment, and celebrates the hard work that has gone in to designing and producing the comic.
