The Devon Climate Emergency project is raising awareness and encouraging everyone to act to reduce their carbon footprint and prepare for the future climate.
A range of organisations and businesses across Devon have declared a climate and ecological emergency by endorsing the principles of the Devon Climate Declaration. Together we are creating a Devon Carbon Plan to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 at the latest, and a Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Climate Adaptation Plan.
If you relocate to Devon, we would love you to endorse the Devon Climate Declaration and do your bit, too!

Devon’s diverse natural habitats include woodlands, wetlands, moorlands, meadows, hedgerows, rivers, estuaries, and many more beneath its coastal waters.
Devon has three World Heritage Sites, which have been determined as being of outstanding universal value and of global importance by UNESCO.
