Climate Change Rally - Trowbridge Civic Centre Tuesday 21st February 09.00 to 12.00
The next full Wiltshire Council meeting is being held on 21st February 2023. This February will also mark the 4th anniversary of Wiltshire Council acknowledging that there is a climate emergency. This is our opportunity to make sure the councillors know we care and that they need to consider the climate in every decision they make!
So... what's happening!
This will be our fouth rally where our members groups and individuals come together in Trowbridge to request the council to take effective and urgent action on Climate Change.
Member group update
One of the ways WCA has challenged Wiltshire Council to action on climate change is by holding them publicly to account at their February Council meetings.
We chose this to highlight the Council's commitment, made in 2019, to seek to make a carbon-neutral county by 2030.
It has always been a peaceful and family-friendly encounter, with Councillors explaining their plans
Come and join our parade to County Hall,
