Cllr Hannah Copley is bringing a motion before Council to support the CEE Bill

26 May 2021

Turning Cambridge Green - our new Councillors have started work!

Dr Hannah Copley, Green Councillor for Abbey, will speak at the City Council meeting on 27 May to propose the Council registers its support for the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill (CEE bill).

The CEE bill sets out urgent actions that the UK government must take to address the climate and ecological emergencies. It was introduced to Parliament by Caroline Lucas MP in September 2020. So far it has been backed by over 100 MPs from eight different political parties, as well as gathering support from as a broad alliance of businesses and organisations plus thousands of campaigners across the country.

If Cambridge City Council adopts Cllr Copley's motion it will be committed to doing all in its power to get the Bill passed. There is strong local support for this to happen. The Bill has already been supported by 49 other councils: if Cambridge wants to be a lead in tackling the climate emergency it cannot remain silent.

Cambridge residents can contact their Councillors to ask them to support the motion.
