Tonight I heard that Warwickshire County Council is to sign up to the national “10:10” climate change initiative launched at the Tate Modern in London last month.
As an individual I signed up on Day 1 of the campaign, and am committed to trying to reduce my personal carbon footprint by 10% by the end of 2010.
At last week’s full Council meeting I asked the Leader of the Council whether the council would sign up to the initiative. Today I heard that the decision had been taken to follow the example of other councils by joining in this nationwide campaign.
An initiative like 10:10 is an opportunity for public leadership, and momentum is all important. I’m very glad that my question has accelerated Warwickshire’s thinking and had a positive outcome. Now it needs to deliver the results!Leave a comment
