Deputy Ward to ask States Assembly to declare ‘Climate Change Emergency’
On 30th April, the States Assembly will debate a proposition raised by Deputy Ward to take action on climate change.
“Climate change should be considered the greatest long term threat to our way of life, our future security and well being.”
“This proposition enables policy makers to have climate change included as a key factor in their planning. It is time for us as a community, a government and as citizens of the planet to have this consideration at the front and centre of our decision making. The legacy we leave for our children and beyond should be the measure of the success of the period of this States Assembly. Putting children first is at the core of this Government's priorities. Leaving a habitable planet to live on is at the very foundation of this pledge.”
The proposition is due to be debated on 30th April.
