City of Oxford (UK)
"Declaring a climate emergency is both a diagnosis of a problem and a sign of its seriousness. That’s why Oxford was one of the first cities to declare a climate emergency. We wanted to signal to our citizens our intent to tackle this global problem at a local level while adding to the nationwide push for political action on the basis of grassroots campaigning. Responding to this challenge must be inclusive, and we’ll host the country’s first Citizens Assembly on the issue in September."
- Councillor Tom Hayes, Oxford City Council’s Cabinet Member for a Zero Carbon Oxford
