Climate change is an urgent global challenge with long term implications across all levels of the community. The effects of climate change will likely be felt at a local level with more extreme-weather events in Casey, including dangerous heat waves, longer and more intense fire seasons, drought conditions from decreased rainfall, increased storm activity and flooding, a rise in sea level and a transition to a more northerly climate. These effects will have social, economic, environmental and human health consequences for Casey’s community.
In response, the City of Casey is developing a Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions and tackle the contributing factors of climate change. Council is setting an ambitious target to achieve net zero emissions by 2030 and net zero emissions before 2040 for the community.
To achieve this, we need your support to create a series of actions that will form a crucial part of the Climate Action Plan. By documenting the actions, we will have a clear guide for the work that needs to be done by Council and the community to reach these targets.
Climate change will impact everyone; therefore, it is up to all of us to help reduce our carbon emissions. This survey is your opportunity to tell Council what actions you think we should be prioritising.
We will also be holding the following pop-up engagement events in the local community.
