Climate Change and Air Quality in Sandwell

climate change

Early in 2020, we carried out a an eight-week public consultation on climate change and air quality. We received many responses from people who are very concerned about both of these topics.

The questions we asked during the public consultation were based on a publication from Friends of the Earth called 33 Actions local authorities can take on climate change.

We will update our Climate Change Strategy to take into account the comments we received and will publish it later in the summer.

Climate change can be a challenging topic for many people. Many of the words and phrases such as emissions and net zero can be confusing but this guide should help to explain things more clearly.

Alternatively, this short video from the BBC explains more about Climate Change.

There are many things you can do to help in the fight against climate change and the more of us that act, the better chance we have of meeting this challenge.
