Recorded at the Shrewsbury Green Party Annual General Meeting 19 November 2022.
In late 2021, Rodington Parish Council (located between Shrewsbury and Telford) declared a Climate & Nature Emergency to reflect councillors' concerns at the current and potential future state of the natural environment. At the same time, they created a voluntary role of Climate & Nature Champion for the parish. This role was taken on by ecologist and local resident Tom Hayek. After a year of work supported by a dedicated working group and using ideas submitted by local residents, the Parish Council will launch its ambitious Climate & Nature Vision for the parish in December. Come and listen to Tom talk about this important step forward for his local patch and how you could do the same in yours.
