In just one year since the first local authority in the UK (Bristol CC) declared a climate emergency, two-thirds of all local authorities have followed suit. But how, in practice, do local authorities move quickly from a declaration of climate emergency, into practical action?
In 2019 we worked with two councils to drill down into specific areas where they can act. We are now sharing our high-level learning from that process to stimulate discussion and help others move from declaration to detail.
Our blueprint for local climate leadership identifies seven service areas where local authorities have opportunities to act.
