Climate Emergency

At its meeting on 8 March 2021, Stinsford Parish Council unanimously resolved to declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency for the following reasons:

  • Overwhelming evidence that human activities are causing climate change (IPCC, 2018).
  • 1.2°C average global warming already being experienced (WMO, 2020).
  • This is impacting nature, lives and livelihoods around the world, nationally, regionally and locally.
  • This links to loss of biodiversity (UN Global Biodiversity Outlook report, 2020).
  • Every bit of further warming will make a difference (IPCC).
  • It’s a global crisis but with local impacts, and locally we can play our part.

A Strategy has been developed to focus on what the Parish Council can do to address this Emergency.  It is recognised that this is a 'living' document and will be revisited as data sets and evidence are updated and published.

A public meeting was held on 2 February 2023 to engage local residents in starting the conversation about what Stinsford Parish can contribute towards tackling climate change.  The presentations given by the Chair of the Parish Council and that given by the Principal of Kingston Maurward College are attached below.
