It is clear from scientific evidence of climate change and of depletion of natural resources, that if our children and future generations are to have a habitable planet, we must all act to change our way of life in just a few years.
- Sustainable Blewbury is concerned with climate change and other environmental issues such as loss of biodiversity and local environmental concerns.
- We must end our dependence on fossil fuels because of the increasing levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
- We need to explore ways in which we as a village can adapt to a low carbon and more sustainable way of living, while maintaining a good quality of life.
SB places the highest priority on raising awareness of climate change and communicating urgently how it affects all our lives.
Blewbury Climate Action
Blewbury Climate Action (BCA) is an action group formed by Sustainable Blewbury at the request of the Parish Council. Our aim is summarised in the statement heading every page of the BCA website: ‘acting locally in a global climate emergency’.
We can see with our own eyes that our climate is changing, and scientists from all over the world agree that the world is facing a climate emergency. But governments are failing to address the crisis, so we must tell politicians that we expect them to do better for ourselves and future generations, and we ourselves must also do what we can to help.
It is naturally more difficult to get going on your own, and also to know what to do that’s most effective, so the BCA group was created to provide unbiased information and to help people do things large or small that will make a difference to the global climate emergency.
