Surf Coast Shire Council made a declaration of climate emergency at its August 2019 meeting.

The declaration recognises that climate change is a real and significant threat and that more urgent action is needed globally and locally.

Council received petitions comprising more than 1000 signatures from community members who are seeking support and leadership on climate change.

There’s an opportunity build on what council and the community is already doing. We will develop a Climate Emergency Response Plan in collaboration with the community.

Council will seek to lead by example by setting targets for energy, emissions, water, waste, land use and biodiversity.

We will keep you updated as we work through our project planning.
