Involving Cumbrians in deciding on climate action
Residents of Cumbria have been at the forefront of planning climate action through citizens’ juries around the county.
Cutting Cumbria’s carbon emissions to help tackle climate change means making changes to different aspects of life. That includes the bigger policies across our districts and the county as a whole, from economic development to public transport. It’s crucial that local people have a part in deciding what action happens in their area, and citizens’ juries are one of the ways Cumbrians have been doing that.
