1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro was attended by over 180 nations
and challenged local government to prepare environmental plans
- Agenda 21.
County & District Councils in Cheshire involved their communities
in different ways to produce their Local Agenda 21 plans. 40 representatives
from large companies, voluntary organisations and public authorities
were invited to prepare a countywide plan. This group, known as
the Sustainable Cheshire Forum, agreed its strategy and action
plan in September 1996. There are 8 major areas for action:
Energy, Waste, Air,
Land, Wildlife, Water, Transport, ECO Audit.
