What Should Be In Belfast’s Climate Action Plan?

The community discussion on the initial draft of the Belfast Climate Action Plan held June 14th was an inspiring event. Moderated by ABCD’s Sarah Kirn, we began with a visioning exercise where audience members shared ideas to “paint a picture of a future we all want to live.”
Visions included: a walkable/bikeable community, car-free lifestyle, better public transportation, electric vehicles & charging stations, net-zero homes for ALL, cleaned up industrial spaces, vibrant ecosystems.
