It seems that every week now, another council is passing motions to recognise the climate emergency. The long silence that followed Darebin's climate emergency motion in 2016 is now popping with declarations almost weekly, not just in Australia but around the world.
Following Byron Shire's motion on 18 October we have seen similar motions by Ballarat (a second regional Australian Council), Bristol (the first UK Council) and Totnes (the second UK council).
A distinction can be made between councils that plan to declare a climate emergency committing to mobilisation of resources and those just passing motions to recognise the emergency. The lists are as follows. Acknowledgement motions only are underlined.
Which council will be next?
