We want to help build a deeper understanding of what climate change will mean for Fremantle. Capturing the feelings and concerns of our community is a key focus as it will allow us to better support you as the impacts increase.


In May 2019, Fremantle Council unanimously supported a letter from the Fremantle Youth Network and declared that the world is in a state of climate and biodiversity emergency.

To date around 1,765 jurisdictions in 30 countries have declared a climate emergency[1]. In Western Australia, 40 local governments have signed the WALGA Climate Change Declaration, representing 65% of WA’s population[2].

This is a global issue with local impacts and, alongside direct action, we need to help build understanding of these local impacts and what role the City can play. Whether you live, work in, or visit Freo, it's important to hear and understand the thoughts and concerns of our community.


Help shape the conversation. Please tell us more below before Sunday 18 October 2020.


To launch our climate conversation, we're a hosting a seminar: 'Speeding up the low carbon transition' on Tuesday 22 September- RSVP is essential, click here to find out more and to reserve your place.
