Help shape Reading’s Climate Emergency Strategy 2025 – 2030

Bring your ideas, expertise and vision


What are we engaging you in?

Reading’s current Climate Emergency Strategy & Action Plan* (which covers the period 2020 – 2025) is nearing its end. ReadingCAN has dedicated 2024 to bringing people together to shape priority climate actions for our next plan, for 2025 – 2030. The new priority climate actions will be decided via widespread participation and consultation – and this is where YOU come in.

How can you get involved?

A ‘core deliberative group’ of 50 carefully-chosen people has been invited to meet three times this year

  • to share knowledge and perspectives
  • to consider inputs from YOU, the wider public and working groups.

The deliberative group reflects the many dynamics, communities and policy areas at play in our town.

There are many opportunities – and a real need – for you to get involved, either as an individual or as an organisation. These opportunities are set out in this document: Diary of Climate Engagement Opportunities.

Please opt into our Reading Climate Engagement Email List to receive prompts, surveys, discussion packs and other invitations related to these engagement opportunities. (As you’ll see, we will need to email some of the surveys to you later in the process, because they depend on things that haven’t happened yet!)

ReadingCAN’s partner in this engagement process is Dialogue Matters, an award-winning stakeholder participation and facilitation team.

Please note…the Reading Climate Engagement Email List will focus solely on this public engagement process. It is not the same as the ReadingCAN Newsletter list. You can sign up to newsletter here, which will continue to share wider community news.

* Explainer…

It’s easy to confuse Reading Borough Council’s corporate Carbon Reduction Plan and the ‘people’s’ Climate Emergency Strategy & Action Plan – so here is an explainer of the difference.
