This is a good target. There are problems with the national governement and the need to work with other actors such as buisneses eg working with local governement to acheive this and demands would have to be put on them. But if we dont work to achieve it things will get worse it would be better to fall short of a hard target than to not try at all.
Divestment from Fossil Fuels
this is a fairly easy one especially if the money could be invested in projects to benefit the area instead such as housing co-ops
Walking and Cycling
yes those with out the car should be supported even if there was not an ecological reason for doing so. It is simple social justice
agree with this in theory but would nt want to make the mistake of doing it with out exploring an improvements in walking, cycling, bus eg first to make sure it worked from day one.
yes but some single use plastics are for medical purposes and we would need to keep those. We still need to strengthen support for proper disposal of all waste.
