Description

Ilkley Sustainability Plan

Climate change, wildlife decline and environmental breakdown are in the news almost every day. They are the most urgent and pressing issues of our time and yet, for most of us, they provide little focus to our lives. We can and should make our views known to our politicians and business leaders. But the scale and urgency of the problem is such that we cannot wait for these bodies to act; we must take it upon ourselves both to reduce the impact of our community on the environment, and to make it more resilient to the changes ahead.


So let's have a conversation about how to move toward a sustainable future for Ilkley, our beautiful town. As a community, we can help turn personal concerns about the Climate and Ecological Emergency into concrete, organised projects.


The Ilkley Sustainability Plan sets out ideas about how we could act together to move toward a more resilient, sustainable future. You can read it here But its aims and actions are provisional. It is a first step in working together to build a sustainable Ilkley, and to play our part in influencing change on a national and global scale. In order to become an effective plan it needs support and engagement with the wider community. The proposed developments require discussion, raising awareness, and agreeing common goals. Some require investment and working closely with local businesses.


Many of our voluntary organisations will be at this meeting, as well as councillors and business representatives. It will be arranged as a ‘market stall’ event. There will be an introduction to the plan and an opportunity to ask questions. Then attendees will be able to choose which of the ten aspects of the plan they wish to consider in more detail and visit the relevant stalls.


We hope that residents, businesses, those who work and go to school here, and occasional visitors will take this opportunity to share aspirations, concerns and expectations so that we can develop a consensus around what we need to do to make a just transition to a sustainable zero carbon future for our community.
