Geelong Council declares a climate emergency

On 25 February 2020, Geelong Council passed a motion to approve a proposed Sustainability Framework unanimously. The motion text included, as the first point, a climate emergency declaration: “Council ….endorse the priority actions including but not limited to recognising climate change as a global emergency.”

This ends our year-long campaign for a local government #ClimateEmergencyDeclaration in Geelong. At the same time, it has left local climate action activists unsure whether or not to celebrate. Stay tuned!
