What is a Climate Emergency Declaration?

 

Climate Emergency Declaration

A Declaration of Climate Emergency is a resolution passed by a governing body such as a city council, a county board of supervisors, a state legislature, or even a national government. It puts the government on record in support of emergency action to reverse global warming. Resolutions vary around the world, with many governments including local climate impacts and new climate goals in their resolution.

By declaring that we are in a climate emergency and committing to addressing it in time to avoid the worst outcomes, local governments can become leaders in the Climate Emergency Movement, and inspire other governments to do the same.
