Climate Change Commission for Wales: How does climate change affect your organisation?

Climate Change Commission for Wales survey - deadline extended to 31 July!

17th July 2015

COP21 is the 21st United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change conference. It will see 50,000 participants from around the world, from all sectors, gather in Paris to discuss how to reach a universal, legally binding agreement enabling us all to combat climate change.  

This agreement will ask countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in order to limit global warming to below two degrees. The forthcoming Environment (Wales) Bill commits Wales to this aim by targeting an 80 per cent reduction in emissions against 1990 levels by 2050.   Ahead of the event, which takes place from 30 November to 11 December, the Climate Change Commission for Wales is asking the sector how climate change affects them, and what they’d like COP21 to deliver for the country.   

This short survey should only take around five minutes to complete, but will really help inform the work of the CCCW ahead of the conference. They’re keen to hear from all sort of sector organisations on this – not only those working directly in climate change, but those involved in social care, housing, education, heritage, sport, equalities, animal welfare and so on. Whatever area you work in, your views are needed.   

The deadline for the survey is 31 July 2015.   Prior to COP21, a series of climate change events will take place across Wales, include a Cynnal Cymru ‘Spoken World’ event in July, Size of Wales’ Go Green Day and Climate Week in October and the CCCW’s manifesto launch in November.
