Thanks to the persistence of DCAN supporters, climate emergency is upfront and centre of Darebin Council’s new 20 year Vision and 2021-2025 Plan. With unanimous support from all Councillors, continued action on the climate emergency is one of the top 10 Big Actions in the Plan. The Plan explains why addressing climate change is a key responsibility of Local Government under Victorian legislation and outlines Darebin City Council’s proud history of leadership in this area.
DCAN looks forward to working with Council in the development of a new Climate Emergency plan to reach zero emissions by 2030 and the implementation of the new and continuing projects outlined in the Plan. Thank you to all DCAN supporters who contacted their local councillor, wrote submissions and participated in the consultation process.
