This report marks a major milestone for the Devon Climate Emergency project. The findings presented here reflect the actions Devon’s citizens would like to see taken in order to tackle the climate emergency.

The report was created by an independent facilitator, and the Devon Climate Assembly is an external advisory body to the Devon Climate Emergency partnership. We hope you enjoy reading the Climate Assembly’s resolutions, as we look forward to transforming them into deliverable actions.
