In August 2021 we launched our Climate Response Communications and Engagement Strategy. This strategy aims to ensure that everyone who lives, works, studies or visits Medway understands our journey to net zero carbon and is equipped with the knowledge, tools and support required to make their contribution to it.

We also aim to support the community to take ownership and corporate or individual action to help us reach our target.

To inspire, promote, and enable action and collaboration towards reducing emissions in Medway, we will continue to launch campaigns and events, and update our social media and newsletter frequently on what's going on in Medway. 

Local events

We'll also be engaging with the public on sustainability and climate change using gaming technology.
