Event description
Join us to learn more about the actions councils can take locally to fight climate change and discover how they are already doing that.

About this event

37% of local (parish and town) councils have declared a climate emergency, with a further 8% declaring a biodiversity emergency. Local councils recognise the importance of climate change, but many feel disempowered to act. In October 2021, NALC published its Climate Change Survey Report. The results indicated that 25% of local councils believed they were too small to make a difference, and a further 20% stated they lacked the resources and power to act.

However, a recent report from New Local highlights the importance of local action in the face of national and international inaction, emphasising the need to conceive of climate change as a series of local problems rather than one single global issue. By taking on small actions, communities that work together can bring about significant change overall.

Learn more about the actions that councils can take locally to fight climate change and discover how councils are already doing this successfully.

Speakers: Chris Bagshaw, Kendal Climate Change Jury representative, Dr Amy Burnett, founder of Development in Transition and Mike Childs, head of science, policy & research at Friends of the Earth
