Over a series of meetings the community has coordinated a response to Hackney Council's Climate Emergency declaration. We hoped to present this at the proposed citizen's assembly in November, but as this has been postponed we have submitted it to the council with a request to present our response to that meeting in the New Year.
Our response is submitted on behalf of Hackney-based voluntary and community organisations and individuals who champion various aspects of climate and environmental action.
We have discussed and debated at meetings and workshops the eight ‘resolves’ declared by the Council. We have kept this response as practical and action focused as possible.
In the attached letter and submission, we ask the council to consider and respond to each point, especially where we seek engagement with our campaigns and action-focused activities.
We look forward to the council's response.
On behalf of the following organisations:
Education for Sustainability
Hackney Food Partnership
Plastic Free Hackney
Hackney Living Streets
