Hounslow Council wants to create a borough where residents feel proud to live and work and which is clean, green and sustainable. In June 2019 the borough council declared a climate emergency. This committed the council to develop a climate emergency action plan by December 2019, setting out how the council will work towards becoming carbon neutral, and ultimately zero carbon, as soon as possible.
To this end, it will hold a half-day workshop on Tuesday, 8 October, called Greener Borough — Addressing the Climate Emergency.
This workshop is an opportunity for residents to:
Provide their ideas for how the council can best respond to the climate emergency and further enhance and green the Borough – both in terms of emissions we are directly accountable for and wider emissions that occur in the borough
Help identify innovative options for how we can engage as widely as possible all our communities on this matter
Help us identify and ensure we are protecting our communities, particularly those most vulnerable to climate change.
