Although Bournemouth’s environment is seen as relatively good, the Council is seeking to minimise the impact of global environmental problems, such as the rise in sea level caused by the climate change. Works are carried out to protect the coastline and pier structures. The Council has a priority to raise awareness among industry and the public of the need to reduce the use of fossil fuels. 5) What are the main aims of Bournemouth’s Local Agenda 21?

The LA21 also aims at allowing Bournemouth to be globally promoted on the European markets as a green resort. 6) Is the Bournemouth’s commitment to sustainable development recent?
No. Bournemouth recognised the need to act on environmental and sustainable development issues prior to the Earth Summit.
