Wokingham Borough’s Labour councillors explain then need for a Citizens’ Assembly on the Climate Emergency.

Petition - Citizens' Assembly on the Climate Emergency

We live or study in Wokingham Borough. We note the current climate emergency action plan adopted by Council is a plan that will definitely not make Wokingham Borough Carbon neutral by 2030. We petition Wokingham Borough Council to: (1) Commission a Citizens’ Assembly to address the issue of how to make the Borough Carbon neutral by 2030; (2) Ensure the Citizens’ Assembly is free from political inference and control; (3) Commit to adopting the recommendations of the Citizens' Assembly.
