Climate & Environmental Emergency Conference

With governments failing to take action to reverse, or even stop climate change, Local councils can play a key role in leading the climate emergency response.

Our ultimate aim is a national declaration of a Climate & Environmental Emergency with its ability to unlock all the required policy changes and funds for a rapid climate emergency mobilisation, but local councils can start the ball rolling by demonstrating successful climate emergency initiatives at the local level.

Whether your Council has declared a 'Climate Emergency' yet or not, we all need to share ideas and information to ensure that urgent, effective action is taken.

Workshops include:

  • Taking urgent steps to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2030.
  • What we need to do and practical ideas about how we achieve this, including divestment, renewable energy, energy saving, carbon neutral transport.
  • Local Planning & Climate Change.
  • Campaigning strategies to get your Council to declare a 'Climate Emergency'.
  • How to engage with politicians on Climate Change.
  • How to engage the whole community including Businesses, Industry, Institutions, Residents, Schools, Further & Higher Education.
  • Effective Climate Change Communication
  • Developing a 'Green New Deal'
