The motion passed with no changes after a long and largely positive discussion.There was only one vote against, because that Councillor wanted an immediate declaration, not a referral to staff.
Be it resolved that County Council:
- Receives the presentation from Kate Grierson, Executive Member and Guy Hanchet, Chair, For Our Grandchildren and Malaika Collette, Peterborough Youth Empowerment regarding the Emergency Climate Crisis Declaration.
- Refers this matter to the Director, Corporate Projects & Services for a report back to Council.
Council has requested a report by the end of the third quarter.
