What we heard

Climate change is an important issue to 93% of survey respondents. Themes that consistently arose were the wide-reaching nature of the impacts, concern for future generations, deep concern with destruction and existential threat, a need to take responsibility and wanting a better future. For those who said it isn’t an issue for them, the main reason was concern with day-to-day issues or that climate change shouldn’t be a concern of Council.

Lobbying state and federal governments for climate change action and adaptation was the top action that respondents believe the City of Fremantle should prioritise, followed by reducing the emissions of City operations. Many other suggestions for action were made.
