Climate Change Emergency

Mayor Jamie Driscoll declared a climate emergency on his first day of office and all three of our local authorities have also declared climate emergencies.

North of Tyne Combined Authority is committed to work alongside our local authorities to ensure the North of Tyne is a leader in climate change education and the green revolution.

In a world first, each state-funded school in the combined authority area will have the opportunity to train one member of staff as a UN accredited climate change teacher.

The Combined Authority held  a Citizens Assembly on Climate Change, giving our people the opportunity to voice their opinions on our climate emergency.
