Welcome to Planet Woking
We are Planet Woking – on a mission to address climate change and sustainability locally. We want to engage local residents, schools and businesses and enable them to play their part in enhancing the sustainability of the Borough, and ultimately in achieving our aims for carbon neutrality. We hope to provide you with lots of useful resources on what the Council has been doing to help tackle climate change locally as well as ideas and inspiration for what you can do at home or at work to help lighten your environmental footprint. And for younger audiences there’s a dedicated section of the website called Little Planet Woking.
A key aspect of our work is communicating not only what we are doing but how the community can play its part. This has led to the creation of Planet Woking – a programme of online resources and events focused on the local environment.
Having declared a climate and ecological emergency last summer, we wanted to deliver a programme of engagement with local residents and businesses to involve them in our climate action and importantly gain ideas on priorities for future climate work. And so Planet Woking was born.
I’m proud that the Council has been so proactive in this area but we need the local community to get involved, be inspired and help us accelerate our local fight against climate change. We live in a wonderfully ecologically diverse Borough, let’s work together to keep it that way.
