Help us to fight climate change

We need your help to shape our plans to tackle one of the biggest issues facing the world today – climate change.

Human activity has caused the Earth to warm by approximately 1°C. While that might not sound like much, it means big things for people and wildlife around the globe.

Unfortunately, rising temperatures don’t just mean that we’ll get nicer weather. The changing climate will actually make our weather more extreme and unpredictable. 

And that could mean big changes in Somerset from flooding to droughts.

Somerset’s councils are coming together to make a plan which will help people in this county play a part in tackling the global issue.

We want to be carbon neutral (that’s removing as much carbon from the atmosphere as we’re putting into it) by 2030 and we want to hear what you think we should do.

Anyone aged 11 to 18 can take part in our online survey which will be open until Tuesday 18 February.

  • It’s just a few simple questions that will make a big difference
  • If you’re under the age of 16, you’ll need permission from an adult to take part
  • It only takes five to 10 minutes.
  • As an extra incentive, there’s a chance to win one of four £25 cash prizes

If you want to take part, please follow →→→→→→  this link to the survey  ←←←←←←

And, just so you know, your answers will be confidential and your personal details won’t be shared with the councils, their employees or anyone else. 
This survey is being conducted by Hope-Stone Research on behalf of Somerset Councils and Somerset Climate Action.

And you can also visit our drop-in session where you can also let us know what you think.

The events will be held on Saturday 22 February between 10am and 4pm at:

  • Vicarage Street Methodist Church, Vicarage Street, Yeovil, BA20 1JZ

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
