STC – Climate Emergency

One of the major conversation points at the World Economic Forum 2021 Davos Summit “Cohesive and Sustainable World”, in conjunction with COVID-19 was of the Climate and Ecological Crisis. In her speech (available to view on YouTube) Greta Thunberg stated “The longer we avoid this uncomfortable truth, and the longer we pretend we can solve the climate – and ecological emergency – without treating it as a crisis — the more precious time we will lose. And this is time we do not have”
Sheringham Town Council declared a Climate Emergency on 4th June 2019, and last year launched its Climate Action Plan. STC is committed to protecting the natural environment, promoting sustainability, supporting the reduction of Air Pollution to meeting World Health Organisation Levels, supporting the growth of Green energy, working towards becoming a zero-waste council, and raising awareness of the Climate and Ecological Crisis.
