Let’s Talk Climate Change

Let’s Talk Climate Change

In July 2022 a Climate Emergency was announced for North Yorkshire. With existing plans in place to reach Net Zero by 2030, Climate Change officers from across the county created a draft Climate Change Strategy to achieve this goal. And be the first Carbon Negative region by 2040.

During the first phase of Let's Talk, responses collected show that Climate Change was ranked as a top 3 priority by:

34% of people in the Let's Talk Local Survey More »

41% of people in the Let's Talk Money Survey

Let's Talk Climate will gather your views and feedback on the draft Climate Change Strategy. By answering the survey questions, which focus on: slowing down and adapting to climate change as well as helping nature to thrive, the information you give will be fed back forming the final Climate Change Strategy for the new authority – North Yorkshire Council.

You will be able to share your views online using a safe and easy-to-use tool called Commonplace which we used on our previous Let's Talk engagements. Our libraries are hubs where you can go and find out more about the Climate Change Strategy, with a hard copy of the draft strategy and fill in a paper survey if you wish.

Events will be organised, alongside our Transport consultation, giving you the opportunity to talk to members of the Climate team about whether you think the council is doing enough to meet our Net Zero target. Further information will be available in the coming weeks.
