Is Coventry City Council doing enough about climate change? — 2 Comments

  1. My view is that while there have been important achievements, the latest IPCC report of Oct 2018 outlines a significantly and structurally more serious situation than any policy and practice – from Uk National Government down – has previously considered.

    Therefore, I believe that communities across the UK need to be turning to the leadership demonstrated by the University and City of Bristol, as well as others, and now including school children, in declaring a stage of climate emergency and committing to net zero emissions by 2030. The simple reality is that anything less, is simply not sufficient.

    This is something recognised by a student coalition at the University of Warwick, who are petitioning for a climate emergency recognition and that the university commit to the above timeframe for emission reductions.

    If anyone has any interest in connecting with these agendas, I’d certainly be pleased to make connections. I think Coventry Council have the chance to play an historical and strategic role here.
