Have your say before the Climate Emergency Survey closes
Live in Bolton? Please give your opinions, climate priorities and ideas to reduce emissions and shape plans so Bolton’s a healthier, cleaner and greener place within 10 years.
Here's a direct link to the survey: https://bit.ly/3o8EoBd. It will close on Friday 29 January.
The survey asks you to rank the importance of potential green options - from more electric vehicle charging stations, to extra cycle lanes or more allotments to encourage local food growth. And it encourages you to have your say on a range of measures that organisations in Bolton could implement to save carbon such as improving energy efficiency in social housing, investing in low carbon transport or more recycling and reusing facilities.
There is irrefutable scientific evidence linking climate change to human activity. Bolton, like many other towns and cities, declared a Climate Emergency in August 2019.
Bolton Vision partners (www.boltonvision.org.uk), including Bolton at Home, are committed to making our activities net carbon neutral by 2030.
When we say carbon neutral, we're describing the activity of organisations or people removing as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as they put into it. The overall goal of carbon neutrality is to achieve a zero carbon footprint. For example, a business may plant trees in different places around the world to offset the emissions from the electricity the business uses. We need to make these changes to secure the future of our young people who are the adults of tomorrow and will inherit the world with the climates changes we've already made.
Thanks to everyone who’s already taken part and completed the survey.
All responses will be anonymised and no individual will be identified in any report.
