Take part in Climate Emergency Survey
Bolton Green Umbrella | Friday 27 November 2020 | 0 Comments
BGU have been asked to circulate the news release below, requesting Bolton residents to take part in an extremely important survey about the climate emergency. Please make your voice heard, and share this with as many other people as possible.
Bolton Vision Partnership - Climate emergency survey
We need to take urgent action to reverse our impact on the planet.
As part of the Bolton Vision Partnership, a group of organisations and businesses from a range sectors working together to improve life in Bolton, we need your support to help reduce our emissions and become a greener society.We’re asking for you to play a part in shaping our environmental plans for the next 10 years by answering a climate emergency survey.
The survey, which takes around five minutes to complete, will help us to identify ways we can best reduce our carbon footprint.
It will ask you to rank the importance of potential green options to introduce, from more electric vehicle charging stations, to extra cycle lanes or more local food production.
We are also asking you to have your say on a range of measures which organisations could implement to reduce carbon emissions, such as improving energy efficiency in housing, investing in low carbon transport or more recycling and reusing facilities.
Jon Lord, who chairs the Bolton Vision subgroup responsible for strong and engaged communities, said: “If we don’t act urgently then the impact of climate change will change our way of life significantly. It might seem to some like a remote issue now but rising sea levels, dryer summers and wetter winters will impact everybody in some way.
“We can’t act alone. Everyone needs to play their part in making Bolton cleaner and greener. I hope that people see that the problem of climate change needs addressing now and they will help us to make steps to reduce our emissions and create a better, greener society for everybody in the borough.”
The survey will be available to complete until January.
