In response to the climate emergency, Portsmouth City Council (PCC) have set up a Board, who seek to facilitate a transformation of our city into one that is greener, healthier and carbon neutral.
This means much less cars, and much more trees, wildlife and bike lanes. It also means excellent public transport, a thriving green tech sector, better insulated, warmer homes, and a circular zero waste economy.
On the board are major employers such as the University, NHS, Gunwharf Quays, PFC, alongside community groups such as Hive, Shaping Portsmouth, Friends of the Earth etc.
A design competition open to Portsmouth residents
We have decided on a name - the Portsmouth Climate Action Board - and now need a logo and supporting tagline (text phrase), that succinctly communicates our objectives in an emotionally engaging and inspiring way.
We want someone who lives in Portsmouth to come up with the design; we'll be promoting the competition in The Portsmouth News, on local art and design courses, and within our vibrant creative sector.
The winner's design will be featured across the city on the Climate Board's communications, posters and presentations. The winner will not only gain exposure, they will also be given the opportunity to work with a professional design team to develop their entry.
Please note the deadline for submissions is Monday 10 February 2020.
