I support this.
Looking forward to promoting this Declaration more widely so that we get more signing up to it. I referenced it in the attachment to my interventions (submission) to the Ministry for the Environment on the Zero Carbon Bill – link to article and pdf intervention here: https://www.catherinemikenn.com/single-post/2018/07/10/Developing-meaningful-Climate-response-action-heres-hoping-politicians-will-embrace-the-big-picture. I hope others are sending their’s in too (consultation ends 19 July 2018). 🙂
