[142] Why are Councils Declaring a Climate Emergency?

Are you curious about what the Council Climate Emergency Declaration movement entails? Want to understand what difference it actually makes to the climate crisis?

Keen to know how you can get your local council to lead in climate action?

If that’s you, you’re in the right place!

In this episode of Eco Chat I’m joined by Climate Reality Leader and elected member of the Gawler Town Council, Ian Tooley.

Ian was instrumental in the process of Gawler Town Council becoming one of the first council’s in Australia to declare a climate emergency and shares his experience of the process.
