Delivering Climate Change Action in Strathbogie Shire

Strathbogie Shire Council became the 100th Council in Australia to declare a Climate Emergency in 2021 and just the third to pass this Notice of Motion unanimously.

Council is serious about mitigating against the risks that climate change pose for the social, economic, and environmental prosperity of our community.

We believe leadership is needed on this issue.

The Climate Change science is undeniable, and we must act now to protect the future for our children and their children.

Since declaring a Climate Emergency, Council has been working with its community to prioritise and set mitigation, adaptation and resilience actions.

Through this process it has developed a Draft Climate Change Action Plan that is now open for public feedback.

We urge you to read the draft plan and have your say by taking the survey below, making a submission or just pledging your commitment to Climate Action on our wall of support.

Feedback closes at 5pm on Tuesday, June 7, 2022.
