With over 200 local authorities having declared a climate emergency, now is the time to consider what your authority can do to help make lasting change. How can your council engage with stakeholders, employees, local residents and businesses? Everyone has a responsibility to work towards creating a zero-emission society.
This seminar will explore how local authorities can work towards meeting their targets and what they are already doing to make positive and lasting change through presentations and group discussion. We will hear how we can utilise the willingness of the public to achieve an area wide difference.
Taking place at The Crystal in London – one of the World’s most sustainable buildings. We will be hearing presentations from a range of experts including Professor Myles Allen, from the University of Oxford who will be talking about The Real Climate Emergency (Professor Allen contributed to the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5oC). Dr Barbara Hammond MBE, CEO of the Low Carbon Hub, will deliver a presentation regarding creating renewable energy projects with businesses, schools and communities, and Emma Osmundsen, MD of Exeter City Living, Exeter City Council will be sharing a case study regarding the building of St Sidwell’s Point – one of the world’s most energy efficient leisure centres.
