Show you care about climate change: Sandwell is taking action

Sandwell Council has launched a consultation on climate change and air quality, and is keen to canvas views from across the borough. The council is urging business representatives, along with Sandwell residents, to contribute thoughts and ideas during an eight-week consultation period, which ends on Sunday 15 March.

Climate change is the most significant environmental challenge currently facing humanity, but it is a complex issue and there are many different approaches the council could take.

We also have the serious issue of air pollution in Sandwell, something closely associated with poor health and early death. Air pollution particularly affects older people, children, and those with heart and lung conditions.

Your views could be vital in helping the council develop its strategy to tackle these issues, and meet the West Midlands Combined Authority’s target of going carbon neutral by 2041.

You can take part in this important consultation in two ways. Firstly, by completing a short online survey (https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=157849307153), which should take just ten minutes of your time.

The other way is to attend a discussion event on Tuesday 10 March. This will run from 9.30am to 11am at Oldbury Council House on Freeth Street. The morning will include a presentation on climate change in Sandwell, followed by focus groups to canvass thoughts, opinions and ideas. It is hoped that attendees will pick up suggestions for changes they can implement in their own businesses straight away.

Attending is a great way to show your concern for the environment and find ways to take immediate action.

To book your place, email kara_preace@sandwell.gov.uk or call 0121 569 6079.

The results of the consultation will help form a climate change strategy for Sandwell that will be put into action this summer and reviewed every five years. It is vital that as many people as possible take part, to ensure Sandwell does everything it can to improve both the local and global environment.

Please share the survey and details of the event with your colleagues and clients.
