Lambeth Climate Action
Published on 17 August 2020 07:19 PM
Climate change has become a climate crisis. We have a huge task ahead of us. Homes, transport, businesses and other institutions across Lambeth produced over 900 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide in 2018. We need to reduce this significantly if we are to play our part in avoiding catastrophic rises in global temperatures. We also need to make sure all of Lambeth's communities can adapt to the impacts of climate change, including increased risk of flooding, heatwaves and air pollution.
That's why, as one part of our local fight against climate change, we are partnering with Lambeth Council who are launching the Lambeth Climate Action website. We want to get Lambeth talking about the urgent crisis we are facing, the impacts it will have on our borough and communities, the inspiring local solutions that exist already, and ideas for a greener, fairer economy.
This website https://lambethclimateaction.commonplace.is/ is an opportunity to contribute to the evidence base and ideas that will be considered by the citizens' assembly and in the development of Lambeth's borough-wide climate action plan. It's also a chance to find out more about the amazing climate action already taking place in Lambeth, and suggest ways we can all work together to maximise our impact.
Please help us share the site and continue building the evidence base, awareness, and engagement through your networks. It will be running until the end of October and complemented with other engagement activities to make sure we're reaching every community in Lambeth. Attached is an animation that you could use to help promote the site on social media channels with the #LambethClimateAction.
Let’s work together to tackle the climate emergency and create a better future in Lambeth.
