Event description

Description

Join us on the 27th of February, in partnership with Green Alliance and M&S, in a celebration and demonstration to parliamentarians of the enormous ambition and commitment there is in the UK100 network of local leaders to make the clean energy transition a success for our country and our communities.

78 local leaders have already committed to 100% clean energy and we hope to reach 100 by the 27th of February. The shift away from dirty fossil fuels to clean energy is happening, here in the UK.

The leaders have made the commitment as part of the momentum around the 2015 Paris Agreement. It reflects the leadership shown by mayors globally on climate change and clean energy. Turning those commitments into reality is the goal of the network.

UK100 connects local leaders with each other, with business and national government, enabling them to showcase their achievements and learn from each other. Through the network they can speak collectively on how to accelerate the transition to clean energy locally and nationally.


Our speakers will include;

Lord Deben - Chair of the UK's independent Committee on Climate Change and former Secretary of State for the Environment

Mike Barry - Director of Sustainable Business (Plan A) at M&S, an ambitious plan designed to address the key environmental, social and ethical challenges facing M&S

More speakers to be confirmed.

The event will take place at the House of Commons, Churchill Room.

Use the Cromwell Green Entrance and ask security for directions. Please allow 20 minutes for security checks, as parliament operates an airport style search.
