London: Responding to the Climate Emergency

This event is now closed to bookings

A series of 45 minute online lunchtime events exclusively for London's councillors on Tuesday 15 Nov at 1.00pm to 1.45pm.

82% of Londoners are concerned about climate change. Over half think it is impacting their everyday lives, and almost 90% want to take action.

Local government has a critical role to play in reaching net zero and helping the city to successfully adapt to a changing climate.

This webinar will provide members with an overview of the impact of climate change on London and its communities, and what councils are doing to respond. It will cover:

  • What is climate change, and how will it affect London?
  • What are councils doing to respond?
  • Introducing the cross London climate programmes – responding to the climate emergency together
  • How can your council get involved?

This event is for London borough councillors.  Register and you will receive a link to the Teams event in advance of the event (if you don't have Teams you can join via your browser).
