The Climate Emergency and Ecological Committee are planning some exciting things over the next few months and beyond and would love to have members of the public involved!  One public representative has already been appointed but the Committee would love to add another public voice from interested parties.

The Committee, which meets on the first Tuesday of every month, are welcoming expressions of interest from members of the public to join the Committee and be a voice for Lowestoft as the Town Council looks at how we can work towards being carbon-neutral and raise awareness of climate change.

As part of the Committee, you’ll be helping to plan the Town Council’s upcoming “Great Big Green Weekend” – a festival taking place in Sparrows Nest at the end of September promoting eco-initiatives, discussion and practices – discuss ways of promoting and supporting environmentally-friendly initiatives in Lowestoft, and exploring actions that the Town Council can take in line with our Climate Declaration.

If you would like to be a part of this important Committee, expressions of interest including reasons why the role interests you should be submitted to us at admin@lowestofttowncouncil.gov.uk.  The full Terms of Reference are available to view here.

Expressions of interest are welcomed by Friday 26th August ready for discussion at the Committee’s meeting on Tuesday 6th September.  We look forward to hearing from you!
