In September 2019 Georgeham Parish Council declared a climate emergency in recognition of the clear evidence that climate change represents a threat to the life opportunities and well-being of future generations, and needs to be addressed at all levels of government.
The Council further declared that all its future actions and decisions will take account of the need to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and reach net-zero carbon by 2030.
The Council also recognises that addressing the challenges of climate change will result in many benefits in terms of health, wellbeing, and community resilience.
As a major tourist destination the parish has a special opportunity to show leadership on this issue and to engage with the many thousands of visitors who come here to enjoy our beaches and coastal scenery.
