Tackling climate change and protecting our environment is a key priority for Bolton Council. In August 2019 the council recognised the conclusions of the ‘Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C’,  and as a result, committed to developing a strategy for the borough to address the issues and prepare for the local impacts.   In Bolton our partners who make up the Vision partnership are joining with us on this journey so that we can get the best outcomes for Bolton.  We believe that these challenges involve all of us and we are keen to understand what you think you can commit to as well.

The vision is for us to use all of our powers to action, enable and support everyone in working towards achieving carbon neutrality and climate resilience by 2030.  This is not an easy undertaking. To be truly effective we need to create a strategy that we all feel involved with and which will inspire us all to take action.  We want to engage with people in Bolton to hear your ideas and views.   We want to start this engagement with this short survey.
