Better Councils

Many authorities are responding to public pressure and declaring a climate emergency. But how to effectively lobby your authority? And if they do declare an emergency, what’s next?

It’s complex for a government body to get this right. Many are short-staffed and underfunded. There is often uncertainty and division about how to turn the emergency declaration into policies that actually make a difference. Often it becomes political hot potato!  

Some authorities treat this as nothing but a PR exercise, whilst some actually implement groundbreaking policies. In our forum, we’re discussing how to best navigate these issues.  Whether you are an elected representative, a resident’s group, or a policymaker, there is someone in our community who can share their experience and help you out. 

After all, with 10 years to halve carbon emissions, none of us can mess around. We need to find solutions quickly. Come and chip in your experience and opinion.
