QUESTION TIME – CLIMATE CHANGE AND WSCC LOCAL ELECTION
The county council elections on May 6th are a key moment to ensure that climate action stays centre stage and doesn’t get sidelined by other pressing issues.
County Council responsibilities are crucial to achieving Net Zero carbon emissions soon enough to avert extreme climate change. Action by West Sussex County Council could help:
• reduce traffic, encourage more walking and cycling and use of public transport
• create nature recovery networks by maintaining road verges and green spaces for pollinators and wildlife
• reduce waste, encourage re-use, repair and recycle
• ensure that schools help our children and grandchildren understand and act on the climate emergency
• prepare for the droughts and floods that may lie ahead as global heating continues
Please email your questions for candidates to us by midnight on 11th April to firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday 5th March 7.30 – 8.30pm

Hurst Festival 2020
Our group was born following a debate at the virtual Hurst Festival 2020, called “The Great Hurst Rethink”. Watch the debate here.
There were some other great events on the topic of sustainable living at the 2020 Hurst Festival. These were designed for kids but we think we can all learn a thing or two from them!
Upcycling – help grow food & give wildlife a home with Sussex Green Living
Love your clothes and your planet with Sussex Green Living
Recycling eco warriors – refuse, reduce, reuse, refill, repair and recycle
Watch this space for more events in 2021 – hopefully some of them face to face.
