    Worcestershire County Council's new Liberal Democrat group of Councillors have been successful in their campaign to get Worcestershire County Council to declare a climate emergency.

    A previous attempt to declare a climate change emergency was voted down by the Conservatives in 2019 but they have been persuaded to change course and finally declare a climate emergency after it became a significant issue in the 2021 local elections.

    There are 2.7 million workers across England who already have the skills we need to reach Net Zero. In Worcestershire there are 30,265 workers who already have the skills we need to reach Net Zero.

    Voters should expect their candidates in the upcoming local elections to commit, if elected, to prioritising a green recovery and ensuring high demand for these jobs in your area. As Liberal Democrats all of our candidates pledge to prioritise a green recovery.

    David and his wife have lived in Malvern for 23 years. He is an engineer by profession, but having spent his working life in manufacturing, his focus now is on transport, especially trains and the importance of a rapid move to low carbon energy production.

    He sees climate change is the great challenge of our times and we must rapidly de-carbonise many aspects of our lives. There is much more the County council should be doing in this area and David wants to be able to push it to move much faster.
