Coventry finally creates a Draft Climate Change Strategy
We have reported earlier that Coventry’s Climate Change Strategy ran out in 2020.
Now, only three years late, the city has finally got round to publishing a draft of the replacement strategy which was supposed to cover the period from 2020 to 2030.
For a highly critical article on this “strategy” see this article by David Ridley and Tom Maidment of Coventry Green New Deal.
Read more about the draft strategy here or a summary version here. And in case that isn’t enough, there is more information here.
The strategy supports the delivery of the city’s One Coventry Plan, which includes tackling the causes and consequences of climate change as one of its three key priorities.
The city wants to hear the views of people who live, work or study in Coventry upon the draft strategy.
The city council has arranged some drop in sessions where the public can talk to members of the team and online Webinars.
There will be five webinars, as follows
- Circular Economy Development
- Equitable Person Centred Development
- Low Emissions Development
- Nature Based Development
- Resilient Development
You can register for a webinar here.
There will also be five drop-in sessions, as follows:
Cannon Park Shopping Centre 12:00 – 14:00 on 25 March 2023
Stoke Library 10:00 -12:00 on 3 April 2023
Central Library 13:00 – 15:00 on 6 April 2023
