The City of Stonnington has declared a climate emergency. Climate change is already impacting our environment, human health and local economy, and it requires an immediate and urgent response.

We all need to work together – Council, the community, schools and businesses – to take action to address the impacts of climate change and work towards a more sustainable future. Business as usual cannot continue, we need transformational change.

The City of Stonnington has declared a climate emergency. Climate change is already impacting our environment, human health and local economy, and it requires an immediate and urgent response.

We all need to work together – Council, the community, schools and businesses – to take action to address the impacts of climate change and work towards a more sustainable future. Business as usual cannot continue, we need transformational change.

While Council has been working for some time to reduce its own emissions and support the community to live more sustainably, it’s time to accelerate our emissions reductions, ramp up the ways we support our community and prepare for changes to our city and community.

To do this, we’re developing a Climate Emergency Action Plan and we want your input. This plan will include actions that Council will take to respond to the climate emergency, as well as the support we will provide for our local community.

By working together to respond to the climate emergency, we can create a sustainable future for all.

We’ve now wrapped up our community consultation process to support the development of our Climate Emergency Action Plan and we’re working on developing a draft action plan. We’ll bring that draft plan to you for feedback later in the year. Thank you to those who contributed.
