This online-only conference is boroughs’ opportunity to get up to speed with the fast-changing climate policy landscape ahead of COP26.

Hosted by Mayor Philip Glanville Chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee, the conference will:

  • assess overall progress on climate action in London since 2019 and across the wider policy landscape
  • galvanise support for the climate programmes amongst boroughs and their partners and
  • build momentum for post-COP climate action.
