20-year-old Lucas Wirga is Allerdale GDF Community Partnership’s newest member. Lucas is from the Workington area and is currently studying Natural Sciences at Durham University.
What made you want to join the Allerdale GDF Community Partnership?
“I recognised the importance of the issue of GDF when I received a leaflet in the post about the GDF Programme earlier this year. I wanted to join the Allerdale GDF Community Partnership to bring together experts and the community to ensure the correct knowledge is being communicated, and to create a level of transparency in the Allerdale community.”
What do you hope to bring to the Partnership?
“I hope to bring innovative new approaches on how we can connect the public and experts in regard to transfer of information about a potential GDF. The community and I recognise the significance and sensitivity of this issue; therefore, we want to ensure the correct decision is made, and that can only be done through communicating with the public.”
What’s your own vision for the future of your community in Allerdale?
“I would love Allerdale to become an area of economic potential, an area which people aspire to move to for work; a community which embraces innovation and sustainable practises, ensuring a bright and prosperous future.”
