Green councillor, David Lyons proposed a motion for Haddenham Parish Council to declare a Climate Emergency in February this year. This week the council finally approved the motion, the first parish council in Buckinghamshire to take this action. David hopes that other local councils will follow suit. He believes that if local people make their voices heard and hold councils to account then central government will be better placed to bring in the changes that are required in order to keep global warming down to 1.5 degrees celsius.
