Climate Emergency - Public

Closed 30 Sep 2019

Opened 23 Aug 2019

Results expected 16 Oct 2019


Eastleigh Borough Council has declared a Climate and Environmental Emergency.

As Sir David Attenborough says, “the scientific evidence is that if we have not taken dramatic action within the next decade, we could face irreversible damage to the natural world and the collapse of our societies."

The Council has set out targets: to be carbon neutral by 2025 and to support communities and businesses across the Borough to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. 

But we cannot achieve this without the help and support of you, our residents. We want to know what efforts you are already making, what you are willing to do in the near future and how the Council can best support you.

Why your views matter

Everything we do in our daily lives, from how we travel to what we eat, has an impact on our environment, both locally and globally.  

This consultation covers areas where residents can take action to collectively respond to the climate and environmental emergency - including travel, energy consumption, diet and leisure activities. 

By helping us to better understand this, together we can take Eastleigh into a carbon neutral, greener future.

What happens next

Information gathered in this consultation will be used to shape the Council's Climate and Environment Emergency Strategy, and the associated action plans which will be published during 2019/20.
