Council joins Climate Emergency Australia

The City of Charles Sturt has signed on as a founding member of national advocacy group Climate Emergency Australia, reaffirming our commitment in building a sustainable future for our community.

We will be represented on the group’s advisory committee which will help shape the response of councils to the challenges of climate change across Australia.

Climate Emergency Australia aims to bring councils together to better share information, pool knowledge and form strategies to tackle issues communities face now and into the future.

Mayor Angela Evans will be our representative on the group’s advisory committee.

The move complements our work as part of the AdaptWest Adaption Plan and the Cities Power Partnership in proactively addressing the challenges of climate change.

Jan Cornish, General Manager Asset Management Services said it was important councils and governments worked together to tackle climate change.

“Declaring a climate emergency acknowledges that responding to climate change is an urgent matter that requires action by all levels of government,” she said.

“It helps to focus our actions at the City of Charles Sturt for reducing our emissions and where we can collaborate with others.

“It complements the Western Adelaide climate change adaptation collaboration of councils through AdaptWest, as both adaptation and mitigation responses are necessary, and now urgent.”
