Understorey: Local Councils and the Climate Emergency

Wednesday 13th September / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

With local government elections only a few weeks away, will the next crop of Western Australian councillors commit to clear, immediate, zero-emissions climate change action at local level?  Lisa Thornton (Perth’s Urban Tree Network and City of Stirling candidate) hopes they will. Understorey asks Victorian climate activist Bryony Edwards about the Darebin Council’s declaration of a climate emergency, and what it means to people’s thinking about local councils, planning, and community action.
