Residents called to take part in Warwickshire climate change focus group

Leamington Editorial 9th Jan, 2023   0

COMMUNITY-minded residents are being called to take part in a climate change focus group in Warwickshire.

People who want to shape the future direction of greener travel and the draft Sustainable Futures Strategy are being sought by Warwickshire County Council to join the group, which will meet later this month.

Participants on the focus group will be asked to read the executive summary of the draft Sustainable Futures Strategy in advance of an online evening meeting set to take place via the Microsoft Teams platform.

The Executive Summary of the Sustainable Futures Strategy can be found at www.bit.ly/SustFuturesExecSumm




Residents wishing to be part of this focus group should complete the Microsoft form at https://forms.office.com/e/6wQfPvJHr4

Places on the focus group are limited and completing the form does not guarantee residents a place. If the group is over-subscribed, then names will be selected randomly from each district or borough to take part to make sure WCC can hear from people from across the county.


The council will be in touch over the next few weeks to let residents know if they have been selected.

And people who want to have their say on how WCC tackles climate change but who don’t have the time to join this focus group can still give their feedback on the draft strategy until the January 15 via the online survey at https://ask.warwickshire.gov.uk

The results of the survey and feedback gathered through the focus groups will inform the development of a final Sustainable Futures Strategy to be taken to WCC’s Cabinet in the spring.

WCC climate spokeswoman Coun Heather Timms said: “We are very excited to share our new Sustainable Futures Strategy because it sets out our direction of travel as a council for years to come. We hope that our residents are equally enthused by the opportunity that this presents them and that many will take the opportunity to volunteer to be a part of this focus group in January.

“Sharing this Strategy with the people of Warwickshire is particularly important because sustainability is something we can’t do alone. We are keen to work in partnership and collaboration with the communities of Warwickshire as we deliver this, so I hope as many people as possible will give us their views.”
