Newham council has declared a climate emergency and will be holding a Citizens Assembly on the issue.
The rise in global temperatures, carbon pollution in the air, the dramatic change in sea levels are all having a devastating impact on human beings and on our planet. We only have limited time to save our environment and drastically reduce our carbon footprint.
We need to clean-up the air we breathe because we suffer from some of the poorest air-quality in the whole country. It has directly led to 96 people losing their lives last year so it’s vital for us to act now, before it’s too late. We’re taking action in Newham.
