Event description
A all-day event bringing public servants together with experts to teach, connect and inspire action on the climate emergency

About this Event

OneGreenGov is the next global event in One Team Gov’s calendar, focussed on the environment, sustainability and climate change.

The global environmental problems we are facing are becoming ever more apparent, and are higher in the public consciousness than ever before. As public servants, our work will be touched by climate change and environmental sustainability whether it is part of our day jobs or not.

The OneTeamGov community wants to bring people together to talk, learn and be inspired to take action - to live and work in more sustainable ways, to share their knowledge, and to develop policies, systems and practices which contribute to tackling the climate crisis, resource sustainability and environmental degradation.

To help contribute to this agenda, we are organising events in the UK and convening events worldwide to do this on 22nd January 2020. The events will have different flavours depending on where in the world they’re organised.

The event in London will be held at Newspeak House, hosted by the London College of Political Technologists. Our ambition is for this event is for participants to:

Learn something new to help you contribute to the fight against climate change;

Meet people interested in taking action for the environment, sustainability, and climate change;

Be inspired to take action.
