Closed 27 Apr 2020

Opened 3 Feb 2020

Results Updated 15 Jul 2020

The Climate Emergency Action Plan (CEAP) Schools' Survey consultation, which ran from February to April 2020, received a total of 195 responses - indicating an awareness of climate issues and a desire for schools to do more to focus on the issue of climate change. The main CEAP consultation received 135 responses and indicated broad support for the CEAP.

The council also hosted two public events, on 27th February and 2nd March, which hosted around 100 members of the community each, providing an opportunity for people to learn more about the climate emergency in Hounslow and give their feedback on the draft action plan. At each event a member of the Hounslow Youth Council spoke to the community about the impact of climate change in Hounslow on the next generation.

Responses to the consultation were incorporated into the final draft of the Climate Emergency Action Plan which was approved by Cabinet on Tuesday, 14th July 2020, kicking off the Council’s ‘Year of Action 2020/21’. The updated report can be found here.

A summary of responses to both parts of the consultation can be found in the feedback report here.

Thank you for taking the time to respond to this consultation, your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Overview

There is a Climate Emergency. We know that climate change will impact us all and have promised to lower the Council’s carbon footprint to net zero by 2030. We also want to help residents, businesses and schools to reduce their own carbon footprint. 

This survey is for school students, everyone else can have their say here

Our draft Climate Emergency Action Plan explains:

  • What is our carbon footprint
  • How we will reduce the borough-wide carbon footprint;
  • How we will reach net zero carbon by 2030.

The draft Action Plan sets out lots of actions to reduce the Council’s and the Borough’s carbon footprint. Please click on the following link to view the draft Climate Emergency Action Plan: Draft Hounslow Climate Emergency Action Plan.

We want to hear from you

The Council cannot tackle the climate emergency alone and we hope all those who live, work or go to school in the borough, particularly children and young people will join in. 

We wish to get as many of you as possible to take part and help us to know how young people think they will be affected. We also want to know how the Council can work with you and your school to address the climate emergency.
