Brighton & Hove Labour stood on a manifesto in 2019 to take all action required to make Brighton & Hove carbon neutral by 2030. In administration, we took significant steps towards that aim. One of those was setting up the city’s first ever climate assembly.
The climate assembly has been delayed by Covid-19, but over the next two weeks a randomly chosen selection of 10,600 residents in Brighton & Hove will receive an invitation to take part.
Co-chair of the Council’s Carbon Neutral 2030 working group, councillor Nancy Platts, said:
“We can all see from the changing weather patterns that the climate crisis is happening.
“We need to move quickly but we need everyone to sign up to the actions needed. Our Climate Assembly is designed to involve people right from the start and this is a chance to shape the city, so it is here for future generations.”
You don’t need any prior knowledge to be a member of the climate assembly, all that is required is a willingness to listen to the information and share opinions.
Keep an eye on your post over the next few days, as you may find an invitation to help shape the policies that will help our city tackle the climate emergency over the next decade.
