CLIMATE EMERGENCY

5 Climate change action groups as the result of the Climate Emergency Public Meeting.

On the 7th October 2019 people from the community of Faringdon attended a Public Climate Emergency Meeting. People gathered together to express their perception of Climate Change and to share ideas and suggestions on how to respond to climate change as a whole community.

The Mayor of Faringdon, Councillor Mike Wise, opened the meeting, giving a brief on how FTC has responded to Climate Change since signing the Nottingham Declaration in 2007.

The meeting had seven tables, each with different discussion topic, with people moving around every 15 minutes.

At the end of the discussion the members of the meeting created 5 Climate Change actions groups:
