We are delighted that the Liberal Democrat group of councillors on Kirklees Council has chosen to become a signatory to the Tipping Point Declaration, joining local MPs Barry Sheerman and Mike Wood.
Last month we were invited to attend the meeting of Liberal Democrat Kirklees councillors (Party Leader Nicola Turner pictured above) to speak about the Tipping Point Declaration. We were pleased to have the opportunity to do this. These councillors had been sent copies of the Declaration on behalf of constituents who have signed up to it.
Furthermore, we recognise the crucial role of local government in addressing climate change – as we already know from Kirklees’ strong environmental record – and we hoped that councillors would engage with a statement on the latest climate science.
The Liberal Democrat group also intends to put the Tipping Point Declaration in the form of a motion to the full council. We will provide further details on this in due course.
If you would like to read a summary of the Tipping Points campaign with events that included vigils and marches, meetings with local MPs and councillors and a presentation by a professor of climate science have a look on https://kirkleescampaignagainstclimatechange.wordpress.com/past-campaigns/
Thanks again to everyone who got involved.
