Climate Emergency - a challenge to Golden Lane Estate residents

The Climate Emergency declared across London over the past ten days has had a dramatic impact not only on the levels of publicity afforded to the issue of climate change but on Thursday turned the spotlight on the City of London. As protesters glued each other to the entrance to the London Stock Exchange the 13 activists who blockaded the entrance to the building wore LED signs reading "climate emergency", "tell the truth" and "you can't eat money".

These actions were more recently followed by the announcement of the carbon goals required to avoid global warming made by the Climate Change Committee.

Here is a useful quiz to test your knowledge of what actions do and don't make a difference.

How do we deal with climate emergency on Golden Lane? What is the truth that needs to be told here? And how is money that is being spent being used to combat this emergency?

Much of the work that went into developing Extinction Rebellion started in Totnes which has been a transition town for the past fifteen years. Details of the Transition Town can be found here. As it happens, the population is roughly the same as that of Golden Lane and Barbican Estates combined. Totnes has been tackling climate change of many years, the Square Mile has a long way to go.

Here are some questions for people living on Golden Lane Estate:

- What technical skills do you have that could be applied to combatting climate change on this estate?

- What changes could be made to the buildings and to the landscape to reduce carbon emissions?

- What changes would you like to make that can only make in cooperation with neighbours?
