Climate Change Focus Groups

Closed 4 Feb 2020

Opened 24 Jan 2020


In July 2019 Surrey County Council declared a Climate Emergency, committing the County to becoming net zero carbon by 2050, in response to the continued growth of global emissions and the subsequent threat of climate change. To deliver on these ambitions, Surrey County Council intends to develop a Climate Change Strategy by May 2020 which will outline our key priority areas, emissions targets and key actions across the major sectors.

In order for us to develop a strategy that reflects the priorities and needs of our residents we are looking to hold four focus groups on each of the major sectors which will feed into our strategy and future action plan development.

If you are interested in attending one of our focus groups please fill in the below form with your personal details and availability. Each participant will be awarded a £50 voucher for their attendance.

The dates and locations are as follows:

Guildford Library, 77 North St, Guildford GU1 4AL.   1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Saturday 8th Feb

Harlequin Cinema, Warwick Rd, Redhill RH1 1NN 11:00 – 12:30 Saturday 8th Feb

Enterprise House, Vicarage Rd, Egham TW20 9FB 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm Tuesday 11th Feb

Leatherhead Institute 67 High St, Leatherhead KT22 8AH 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm Wednesday 12th Feb


What Happens Next

Following their submission of interest, participants will be contacted in the week beginning 3rd February inviting them to one of the four focus groups.
