Climate Change Partnership launched

Gosport Borough Council has set up the independent Gosport Climate Change Partnership, bringing together a range of local organisations which can share their views and expertise to cut carbon emissions across the whole of Gosport.

The newly-formed partnership plans to:

• exchange ideas on reducing emissions and adapting to climate change

• inspire climate action across the borough and in neighbouring areas

• offer feedback and suggestions to the council and other organisations

• take action by setting up its own projects

Tom Morgan, assistant head at Brune Park Community School, is the chairman of the partnership. He said: “Tackling climate change and its effects will mean changes for all of us, so it’s important we work together. The partnership gives us a way of doing this.

Organisations in the partnership include: Abri (housing association), Co-operative Group, Gosport and Fareham Friends of the Earth, Gosport and Fareham Multi-Academy Trust, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, HMS Sultan, Loud and Proud, and Sustrans (walking and cycling charity).

Any organisation based in Gosport can apply to join the partnership by emailing climate.change@gosport.gov.uk
