Adur and Worthing to host Climate Assembly

Local residents are being invited to have their say at a Climate Assembly about how Adur and Worthing should tackle climate change.

The Climate Assembly, which is being run independently by the Democratic Society, will reflect the population of Adur and Worthing. Letters have been sent to 8,000 randomly selected local households inviting residents to apply, from which 40 people will be selected to take part.

Assembly participants will meet online from September to December, and be asked to consider two questions and make recommendations for:

  • How can we in Adur and Worthing collectively tackle climate change and support our places to thrive?
  • What does this mean for the way we live and for our local environment?

Cllr Daniel Humphreys, Leader of Worthing Borough Council, said:

“Building on the successful Zero 2030 conference that we hosted in Worthing earlier this year, at which we outlined to delegates our plans for combating climate change, we now want to hear from residents their views to help shape the local response to the climate emergency.”
