Climate emergency toolkit
We declared a climate emergency in November 2019 and have adopted a Zero Carbon Strategy to bring down our own emissions and support businesses and communities (with the help of Net Zero Now) to do the same.
Growing numbers of parish and town councils are doing the same, and to encourage and empower these and other parish councils and community organisations we have compiled this Climate Emergency Toolkit linking to resources and organisations for support to take action in response to the climate emergency. You can register that your organisation has declared a climate emergency on the Climate Emergency website.
The Toolkit is part of our Zero Carbon Communities programme - a wide-ranging programme of support for our communities to go net zero. This includes an annual Zero Carbon Communities grant scheme providing funding up to £15,000 for projects to reduce carbon emissions and engage communities; a programme of events and a quarterly newsletter.
