Have your say on addressing climate change in Frankston City

Thursday 23 July 2020

Frankston City is experiencing the impacts of climate change and Council wants to hear your ideas for how we can work together to protect our community, economy and environment.

If you live, work or visit the City, you can easily share your thoughts on climate change with Council between now and Wednesday 26 August, via the:

Responses from the survey and forum will help shape Council’s future actions on climate change and inform the next update of the Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Plan.

Frankston City Mayor, Sandra Mayer, encouraged the community to contribute.

“We recognise the need for urgent action to address climate change and keep people and the environment safe, now and for generations to come,” Cr Mayer said.

“We want to hear your ideas and concerns so we can focus this action on the areas it is most needed.”

In a move dedicated to protecting the community from the impacts of climate change, Council declared a climate emergency in November last year.

“Since then, COVID-19 has shown us it is possible to work collectively on changes which will improve our planet,” the Mayor said, also asking those completing the survey to share it with their friends, family and wider network.

“The more people who complete the survey, the better picture we will have of our community’s priorities and ways of working together to respond to climate change ─ for the sake of our environment and those who live, work and play in Frankston City.”
