Coventrys Agenda 21 is about improving
peoples quality of life in the city, whilst making sure that we dont store up
problems for the future. This means taking what we need now, sharing it fairly (so that
everyone has enough) and not depriving future generations of the good things in life, such
as clean air and water and access to facilities.
Over 150 organisations are
involved in working to make Coventry more sustainable and this is being co-ordinated by
Coventry Agenda 21 Steering Group which is made up of voluntary, public and private sector
organisations with support from the Agenda 21 Team at Coventry City Council.
WHERE DOES AGENDA 21
Agenda 21 was the major
international agreement signed at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992. It was reinforced at
the Sustainable Cities Conference in Istanbul in 1996 and the Rio+5 conference in New York
June 1997. Its main legacy is the drive towards sustainable development and a more
democratic way of working.
