Event Details

Local Authorities and the Climate Emergency


Please note that this event will now be held virtually and all registered attendees have been informed of the new arrangements.  


The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research invites councillors and local authority officers and managers to an evening of sharing what's working, where the challenges remain and how they can best be addressed in taking climate action. 

 

Over 65% of local authorities have declared a climate emergency in the UK. Whilst recognition of the need for action is clear, confronting the climate emergency raises a number of very practical questions.

 

As part of a year of events celebrating the 20 years of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change, Tyndall Manchester is hosting an evening to engage across local authorities to provide evidence-led, practical, real-world experiences.

 

Sessions will focus on the technical and financial aspects of council led actions around climate change and sustainability, as well as citizen and business engagement, and community buy-in. Drawing on experience and knowledge from speakers from public, private and community sectors to seed round table discussions, the evening will be focussed on building capacity, bringing fresh ideas, and providing an easy and supportive environment to share the successes and challenges involved for those working to tackle the climate emergency at the local authority level.


Confirmed speakers so far include:


  • Chris Jones, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research - Setting local authority carbon targets 

  • Simeran Bachra, CDP - How Local Authorities are stepping up their climate action

  • Paul Bircham, Electricity North West - Plans for reaching net zero by 2038

  • Mark Atherton, GMCA - Delivering the 5 year environment plan and beyond

  • Jonathan Ward, Nottingham City Council - Nottingham’s approach to sustainable carbon neutrality – tools, tips and targets
