Mid-Devon Climate Emergency Declaration

On Weds 26 June 2019 Mid-Devon District Council declared a Climate Emergency and set a target for net zero carbon emissions by 2030 by unanimous vote. The public were there in force with passion and ideas, the energy in the room was ‘unusual’ for a council meeting! Councillors were empowered to act, and it was great to see. We CAN make a difference.

Sustainable Tiverton (aka TACT) will be looking to influence and champion the changes we need to make to get this target met. Of course a lot of measures need to be taken at higher tiers of government, but there is also a lot can be done locally and the local councils can put pressure upwards in the right directions knowing the public is behind them.
