One of the artists, David Todd, said: "Just getting told about climate change is quite a hard approach. Sometimes people need to see it."

Mr Todd created two lamps, both of which are made from disposable material. One lamp keeps plants alive without any maintenance needed and the second represents mental health. It has needles in its lampshade to represent the negative thoughts and feelings despite a shining light.

The Young Norfolk Visual Arts Exhibition exhibition is a collaboration between Norwich Art 4 Youth, Our Norfolk Arts Adventures, Transitions: Climate Change Project, Young Norfolk Arts.

The exhibition is on until Friday.
