Inspired by schoolchildrens’ action, an Irish Council, and UK parliaments declare “a biodiversity and climate-change emergency”

Irish Times 2nd May 2019 Wicklow County Council has become the first local authority in Ireland to declare “a biodiversity and climate-change emergency”, recognising the need to respond more urgently to the threat of climate breakdown and the global decline of species.
The unanimous decision was taken this week by councillors after they were briefed by local students who participated in recent school strikes for climate action. It coincides with similar declarations made in the UK, Scottish and Welsh parliaments – and by cities such as London and Manchester.
