Be part of our video to the UN Climate Change Conference!
We are inviting young people across the district to say what they think the world's leaders should be doing to solve the climate emergency.
Ask a parent or guardian to film you answering the following question in 30 seconds or less: “What one thing should we all start doing now to stop climate change?” then sent it via WhatsApp to 07591189977
We will then create a short film by compiling some of the best ideas and share this on social media. We’ll also address it to the world's leaders attending the climate change conference.
Be as creative as you like - the more inventive and original your ideas the better!
If you are under 18 it’s really important that you check with your parent or guardian first and get their help filming and sending your video.
Please send your videos by 5pm on Friday 20 July.
The Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy
The Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy will set out how the district Council addresses the causes and impacts of climate change in order to meet the Climate Emergency Declaration made in 2019.
Video interview about the strategy
The Strategy will contain key actions and milestones that, working together, the Council, our statutory partners, business, third sector and community partners will need to deliver to reach our net zero carbon target. The Strategy elaborates on the actions currently being progressed. The Council has a key role to play as a community leader and through the services we provide.
We have 7 action areas:
- Energy and the Built Environment
- Sustainable Travel and Air Quality
- Agriculture and Food
- Reducing Emissions from Waste
- Circular Economy and Community Wealth
