The West Sussex Climate Conversation



What is the West Sussex Climate Conversation?

Our lives have changed in unprecedented ways this year.

For the first time in a generation, millions of us have started working from home, stopped travelling abroad and socialised far more online. 

We have launched the West Sussex Climate Conversation to find out how these changes as a result of the Covid-19 restrictions have affected our response to climate change.

We are encouraging all residents to complete this survey. It will look at how our behaviour has changed during the pandemic and how this has affected our local environment.

Where can you find the West Sussex Climate Conversation?

People can take part in the survey online.

The West Sussex Climate Conversation runs until 6 December 2020.

It is being led by Local Partnerships, a body set up to support councils in tackling challenges and to share their findings.

Why should you take part?

We want to hear from our residents to understand what they are now doing differently as a result of the pandemic and how this could help our response to climate change.

Information gathered will be used by Councils across West Sussex to help support residents and businesses to continue with, or start more, positive actions.

Covid-19 has presented us with some extremely challenging and difficult times, but in some circumstances, it has created opportunities for us to look at how we live our lives and how we might be able to change for the better in the future.

Climate change continues to be a critical issue to address. We want to use this opportunity to see how we can help tackle climate adaptation and further encourage positive environmental changes we have seen this year.

The Climate Pledge

The Climate Pledge

We asked as many residents as possible to make a pledge to combat climate change.

Hundreds of you signed the Climate Pledge and shared the small (but important) steps you would be taking to protect the environment.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part.

You can continue to play a role in keeping our county protected for generations to come by joining the West Sussex Climate Conversation and completing the survey.

We look forward to hearing from you!
