Wandsworth Council leader Cllr Ravi Govindia has set out his ambition for Wandsworth Council to play its part in tackling climate change – with the goal of being carbon neutral by 2030 and a zero-emission council by 2050. In its 2019-2021 manifesto, the youth council said it would work with the council to review its environmental policies to help it reach this goal. "Wandsworth Youth Council thinks it's vital we address the issue of climate change because it will affect our generation more than anyone else,” said Tessa Yates, youth councillor and climate change campaign lead.
