Reading climate change partnership
I went along to the Reading climate change partnership kick-off meeting yesterday. If we are to tackle climate change we all need to work together so I think this partnership is really important. There must have been about 50 people from different sectors and backgrounds in the room which was really positive to see -- private, public, voluntary, faith, community etc. We were trying to modify and agree a paper on the mission, aims and objectives of the group which was fairly hard going given the size of the group but we made some progress. The next stage is to set up a working group to put more flesh on the bones that we discussed and to select the executive board of the partnership. Hopefully this board will be agreed at the Local Strategic Partnership meeting in July and the first meeting of the climate change partnership will be in around September.
