BarNET ZERO - Barnet resident's recommendations on Climate Change and Biodiversity
We’ve committed Barnet to becoming a net zero carbon borough by 2042 and as a council by 2030. This year, Barnet's first-ever Citizens' Assembly on Climate Change and Biodiversity, brought together 40 randomly selected residents to develop recommendations in response to the question: "Barnet has declared a climate emergency. What more can we do together to make Barnet more sustainable now and in the future?" In parallel to this, 20 residents aged 12-17 participated in a Young People’s Assembly. The two groups came together, to develop ideas and recommendations on how we can achieve net zero carbon in Barnet by 2042. The council will provide a formal response to these recommendations at the end of this year.
