Climate Emergency Focus Group

One of the most talked about issues at the moment is Climate Change. Bognor Regis Town Council declared itself a Council of Climate Emergency on 4th November 2019, which led to the formation of the Climate Change Topic Team.  This has since become known as the Climate Emergency Focus Group, who report to the Town Council's Community Engagement and Environment Committee. 

The Climate Emergency Focus Group includes Town and District Councillors, interested stakeholders, and members of the community who are keen to combat the ever-growing threat to our climate and environment.

The Great Collaboration

By using The Great Collaboration Toolkit you are part of a bottom-up, local initiative that provides detailed, local information to allow local policy to be directed at the specific needs of local communities. In other words, you’re helping get the right actions to happen in the place that you live. The Great Collaboration Toolkit captures information about the carbon reduction actions that individuals, businesses, community groups and schools in your local community have taken, want to take or unable to take. The captured information – completely anonymised – is summarised into a Local Council Report that can be presented at a council meeting. The insights given in the report enable you to see what is happening in your local community and this valuable information can be used to inform your own Carbon Action Plan. With over 60 actions within the Toolkit, you can imagine that there will be many interesting findings when you compile your own Carbon Action Plan.

Biodegradability Poster

In 2018 a young member of the public had asked the Community Engagement and Environment Committee to consider an idea he had seen on holiday regarding a poster that was aimed at raising awareness of sea pollution and the consequences to the environment when items entered the sea. The Committee agreed that this was a great way of drawing attention to the issue and commissioned a poster similar to the one the young resident had seen and translated into French, German, Polish and Russian.
