The Kirklees Climate Commission is being established as an independent advisory body to bring actors from the public, private and third sectors together to support and guide ambitious climate actions across all parts of Kirklees.
The Commission will support Kirklees as it works towards net zero carbon emissions and greater climate resilience so that it can be a happier, healthier, more prosperous and more inclusive place.
The Commission will work towards its goals by enabling engagement, supporting constructive debate, strengthening the evidence base, promoting best practice, helping to build capacities for delivery and regularly reviewing progress across the district.
The Kirklees Climate Commission is part of the ESRC-funded Place-Based Climate Action Network (PCAN).
An exciting opportunity has arisen for individuals to join this newly formed Commission, to shape how their community can help tackle the climate emergency and protect the local area now and for future generations.
The Kirklees Climate Commission - whose advisory panel has been meeting since the beginning of the year - is now recruiting for members, with applications welcomed for a number of Commissioners to represent the private, public and third sectors from across the district.
