What should Kendal do about climate change?
After weeks of listening to Climate Change experts (see presentations here) and debating the information shared about energy, transport, food and political leadership; members of the Kendal Climate Change Citizens Jury have agreed 27 recommendations to answer the question ‘What Should Kendal do about Climate Change?’.
The recommendations are summarised below. Read the full recommendations via this link.
Thanks to crowdfunder supporters, SLDC funding and the skills and generosity of Land & Sky media, a short film featuring Jury members has been created, please click on the image below to view it.
Supported by facilitators Shared Future and co-ordinated by Kendal Town Council, the Jury have focused on key areas that if achieved would see Kendal become a ‘shining light’ of positive climate action. The expert presentations demonstrate how Jury members arrived at their conclusions.
The Jury members reflected Kendal’s community and the recommendations cover aspects of daily life where changes would benefit both the environment and the health and wellbeing of residents.
The next step for Kendal’s Citizens Jury is a Recommendations Panel where organisations will be invited twice a year to share progress and best practice and develop partnership approaches to climate challenges. The Recommendations Panel will be chaired by Kendal Town Council who will share progress reports whilst developing their own action plan to implement recommendations.
