Councillors Climate Support Network

Establishing a Climate Emergency support network

Following up on interest from several councils who enquired about support available for action around the climate emergency, including seeking to understand the potential of developing a network, Devon Communities Together (DCT) collaboratively designed a survey to better understand the range of current actions undertaken and the needs and demands of councils across Devon. In December 2020 and January 2021 107 total responses were received to this survey (from 97 unique councils).

Full survey findings can be found by clicking the link below:

 Council Climate Survey

The findings showed strong support for developing a network and primary support needs named were:

  • a) Community engagement and consultation to develop future plans.
  • b) Support in creating baseline analysis of CO2 emissions in their community.

On April 7th 2-4pm DCT will host a Zoom meeting to continue to understand the shape any support networks could take, this will be followed by a second meeting in late June – with a feedback survey in-between these meetings to shape network design.
