In 2019, Telford & Wrekin Council declared a climate emergency. It is now working, along with partners, to go carbon neutral by 2030 – and to reduce single-use plastic across the council by 2023!


Together will be beat climate change


Like most people, I'm aware of climate change and the increasing impact it's having on our planet, and again like most people I want to help. But where do you start? When facing such a large and global issue it's easy to feel powerless and unable to make a substantial change, so you don't try to make one at all.
While it's easy to fall into this sense of helplessness, it's important to remember that the big change that's needed starts with each and every one of us. Making small but effective changes locally and in our own lives will accumulate to the environmental reform we all need. Whether that be biking to work more often or swapping out that steak dinner once week for a more sustainable plant based meal, there's always something you can do and no step is too small.

That's why I've chosen to become a Climate Change Champion for Telford & Wrekin, it's a great opportunity to get involved with the local community to start tackling climate change in our own backyard. I believe there is a Climate Change Champion in all of us, so I would encourage anyone who's interested in making a positive change to get in contact and sign up.

 Together we will beat climate change.
