In the City of Victoria, we’re putting a strong climate action lens front and centre.
Current political jargon requires that policy makers look at issues through a particular “lens”. In this case, the word has taken on a life of its own. The purpose of a metaphor is to clarify meaning by creating an image in the mind of the reader. I struggle to imagine the councillors pushing ahead of them a large lens, a giant eye, perhaps, like something out of Lord of the Rings.
