Devon Climate Emergency
creating a resilient, net-zero carbon Devon where people and nature thrive
The Devon Climate Emergency project is raising awareness and encouraging everyone to act.
A range of organisations across Devon have declared a climate and ecological emergency and have endorsed the principles of the Devon Climate Declaration.
Together, we are working on…
Devon Carbon Plan
Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Adaptation Plan
The Climate Impacts Group is using its collective knowledge to create a Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Adaptation Plan. This will consider how the region and its citizens can adapt to living in a warmer world.
As well as working to create a Devon Carbon Plan and a Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Adaptation Plan, partners are also taking action on many immediate projects.
A brief summary of the changes that are needed to create a net-zero Devon.
Who we are
A range of public, private, and voluntary organisations from across Devon came together on 22nd May 2019 to form the Devon Climate Emergency Response Group.
The project is aiming to create a resilient, net-zero carbon Devon – where people and nature thrive.
Achieving this will require collaborative action from everyone across Devon.
