GONHS Supports Parents For Future - Climate Strike Petition

27 June 2019

GONHS is supporting the Parents For Future - Climate Strike Petition.

This Petition urges the Government of Gibraltar to urgently address Gibraltar’s Carbon responsibilities in order to meet its declared Climate Emergency Pledge. We call for a totally independent Climate Body, funded and tasked to roll out a cross-party supported agenda, set in a time frame that legally binds all future administrations.

The areas the petitioners wish to see addressed include: action on Pollution / Waste / Energy / Transport & Development.

The agenda for the independent climate body should include transitioning away from fossil fuels, tackling pollution, harnessing all suitable renewable energy technologies, expansion of green areas to include retro planting along walls and pavements, protection of all existing carbon sinks, evaluation of development impacts, and action on traffic and transport. We call for public engagement and participation in this process.

We ask that our members and the general public sign the petition here.
