To successfully tackle the challenges of the Emergency will require the support of all Stirling’s residents, as well as action by national and local government, other public and voluntary organisations, and business.
As the Council develops a Stirling-wide programme of activity to support and encourage partner, business and community action, we need to gain a better understanding of how local people view the challenges and opportunities of the Emergency to encourage everyone to take action. This will include a range of Climate Conversation events and on-line opportunities for people to feed in their thoughts, ideas and concerns they have for this challenge of our times.
While we all learn to live with the Coronavirus and adapt our activities to the challenges it brings, our planned original engagement programme has been put on hold. The Council has developed an on-line public engagement platform, Engage.Stirling, where local people can comment on draft reports and project proposals.
The Council conducted a resident’s survey over summer 2020 to gauge the level of support for actions that individuals, the Council and our partners could take. This included finding out what barriers prevent people from making changes that would benefit everyone. The survey invited residents to provide their views on the Climate & Nature Emergency and the feedback will be used to guide our engagement and delivery programme.
With 1,090 responses, the survey generated a huge amount of data and information. The results of the responses to the closed questions in the survey can be found in this Phase 1 report. More detailed information on the data used to compile that report can be found here.
Analysis of the 2,200 additional comments received was carried out by Masters’ students at the University of Stirling and their findings summarised in this Phase 2 report.
