Oxford City Council gets enthusiastically behind Green Party Climate Emergency motion to become first Council to announce a 'Citizen's Assembly' on climate change.
Yesterday, Oxford City Council announced that it will honour a Green Party motion (proposed by Green Cllr Craig Simmons and seconded by Green Cllr Dick Wolff) passed by Council on 28th January 2019 and establish a Citizens Assembly on the climate emergency.
Says Cllr Craig Simmons,
"Getting citizens on-board is an important part of tackling the climate crisis. However, it is only one element of a comprehensive plan to address the climate emergency. The Council needs to look long and hard at its own decision-making and set a good example, At the moment, it isn't."
