Climate Assembly UK

In 2019, Parliament declared a climate emergency based on evidence from the IPCC (Intergovernmental panel on climate change) report 2018. In January of this year, a Citizens' Assembly was set up in Birmingham with the aim of making recommendations to a House of Commons Select Committee about how best to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050. The targets that the Assembly were set were criticized, as it was pointed out that 2050 would be far too late and targets needed to be reached much sooner. Other aspects of the emergency, for example, biodiversity loss was not even discussed during the Assembly. Nevertheless, the resources which emerged from the Assembly are of extremely good quality and look at a wide range of issues. If you go to 'resources', there are a number of short videos to explain the situation we are facing, and what can be done about them.
