As you may be aware, the Government launched a public consultation process for the next Climate Action Plan yesterday. As part of this process, everyone has the opportunity to engage with an online Climate Conversations platform, this platform will seek people’s opinions on various elements of Climate Action and particularly perspectives on actions at a local level. Government want to hear from as many people as possible in order to ensure that a diverse range of perspectives and experiences inform the development of the next Climate Action Plan.
This consultation will include both the Public Participation Networks, who already have a separate, specific role in the consultation process, and the Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs), who will provide onward distribution to all of their members at a local level.
DRCD continues to be very involved with the processes to support Climate Action at a national level and would also encourage all staff and their families to engage with this platform and ensure that your opinions and the opinions of your family and friends are considered as part of this important process.
