That this Council declares a climate emergency.

We call on central government to immediately take the radical measures necessary to drastically and sustainably reduce our carbon emissions. That all future policies and possible solutions are in keeping with a just transition, and that this just transition is taken within a global context.

We further call on central government to take all steps needed to profoundly reduce our contribution to anthropogenic climate change, and to aid the international effort of preventing irreversible global warming and climate catastrophe.
