Event description
This free event will look at the role of local climate action groups and local councils in responding to the climate crisis.

About this Event

Many councils and communities have declared a climate emergency and are aiming for net zero carbon, many by 2030. Local climate action groups are pressing their councils for urgent action. Other organisations including universities, renewable energy companies and environmental specialists are adding their voices.

What do we do after the climate emergency has been declared?

As well as a small number of speakers, there will be workshops to share and develop ideas.

Topics are likely to include:

• How to work alongside the Council without losing focus and urgency

• Energy is used in your area: where the emissions come from, and where we can create change

• Creating change on housing, planning, transport, agriculture, nature.

• Making local planning processes deliver zero carbon

• Working with universities and other parts of civil society

• Citizens assemblies and other ways to give people a voice

This event it is being planned by county and city networks with support from various national climate campaign bodies. We are very grateful to University College London for their support for this event. There is space for up to 200 people. We welcome collaboration around this event and ideas for sessions.
