Wales Climate Week takes place November 21-25 and it offers us an opportunity to hold a national conversation on climate change.
The week explores the action needed to reduce carbon emissions and create greater resilience to the impacts of climate change we’re already experiencing across Wales.
In particular, this year’s theme focuses on the important contribution that the general public can make in helping to tackle climate change.
“Please add your support”
Cllr David A Bithell, Climate Champion, said: “Climate change is not a problem for the future, it’s a very urgent problem that needs addressing quickly. It can be easy to think ‘I’m already doing enough’, or that responsibility lies elsewhere, but it’s clear that it’s going to take a big effort from all of us, so please add your support to the campaign. At Wrexham Council, we’re continuing to make good progress with our Decarbonisation Plan, where we’re working towards achieving carbon zero by 2030.”
Have you completed our climate change survey? Time’s running out…
There’s not too much longer left for you to complete our climate change and decarbonisation survey!
The survey will be live until November 30 and only takes around 5-10 minutes to complete, and there are some great energy saving prizes up for grabs.
People who complete the survey and leave their email address will be entered into a draw, giving them the chance to win one of the following:
• bike vouchers
• slow cookers
• air fryers
• mobile phone solar chargers
• annual pass to Xplore!
We’re asking as many residents as possible to take part, so please share with family and friends as well.
Welsh Government consultation is open
Welsh Government has an open consultation asking for your views on its draft strategy for engaging the general public in action on climate change.
If you want to take part, you will need to respond before it closes on December 14.
You may need to refer to the consultation documents as you answer the questions (these are available to download on the Welsh Government website).
You don’t have to answer all of the questions if you don’t want to, and you can save the form to complete later by providing an email address.
