Petition is successful with 368 signatures
To: Highland Council
Declare a Climate Emergency
We won! The council caved in to pressure and the effort of so many people including about 900 in total who signed the petition both on and off line, to all our activists who braved the cold outside Highland Council buildings and particularly the hard work of Cllr Pippa Hadley submitting the amendment (seconded by Cllr Andrew Baxter) and declared a climate and ecological emergency and agreed to work towards a carbon neutral highlands by 2025.

Well done everyone. Now to get to work to help them achieve this!
