The Surrey Climate Commission was officially launched in June 2019, formed from a collaboration of organisations including Surrey University, Surrey Chambers of Commerce, Siemens, World Wildlife Fund and Surrey Wildlife Trust.
Surrey Climate Commission held its end of year Summary Event on Wednesday 4 December 2019 at WWF Living Planet Centre, Brewery Road, Woking.
The event gave us the opportunity to sum up how far we have come since our launch in June 2019. Watch a film of the event here.
Two Climate Forums were held on consecutive days in November to gauge people's views on what they felt the key areas were in tackling climate change in Surrey.
A healthy mix of individuals was invited from across the private, public and citizen sectors. They were also asked what practices they were carrying out at present and what role the Climate Commission could make in the future.
"The Surrey Climate Commission fills a crucial gap between national and local efforts to accelerate the scale and pace of action to address climate change."
