    Environment Working Group

    Having proposed the declaration of a climate emergency, the Liberal Democrats are setting up a local Environment Working Group to progress our thinking and actions on a wide range of environmental issues, not just climate change, and we are looking for members to join the group and help us. Meanwhile, the Council will be developing its Climate Change Emergency action plan proposals.

    Both nationally and here in the Chilterns we're experiencing a surge in the number of new members. Our membership has quadrupled in the past four years. It surged around the time of the European elections and following the election of Jo Swinson as our new Leader, we're currently getting a steady flow of new members every day.

    A full meeting of Chiltern District Council (23 July) has agreed a motion to declare a climate change emergency. The proposal was made by Liberal Democrat Councillor Peter Jones. Chiltern follows more than 90 other UK councils in agreeing similar declarations.

    Declaring a climate change emergency is intended to mean that governments mobilise society-wide resources at sufficient scale and speed to protect civilisation, the economy, people, species, and ecosystems from the risk of climate change.

    In addition the Liberal Democrat councillor told the council "our words will tell our residents that we have listened to their concerns, that we care too, and that we will take action as we can."
