Has your organisation declared a climate emergency? Are you committed to radically reducing your emissions by 2030? This online conference will explore the role of councils, other public organisation and businesses as 'catalysts for change'. as well as showcasing practical ideas and case studies to help you deliver on your commitments.
Our first Conference was held at Lancaster Town Hall in March 2019, and was attended by 200 Councillors, officers , activists, young people, faith groups, health professionals and many others from all over the country.
This year’s conference marks two years of Climate Emergency Declarations made by Councils in the UK, starting with Bristol. To date 300 UK Local Authorities (75%) have declared a 'Climate (and in some cases Ecological) Emergency, alongside more than 20 universities and a variety of other organisations, including the UK Parliament. Many have developed Action Plans with a target date of 2030 or earlier.
FutureGov remind us that "Our public institutions are uniquely positioned to be catalysts for change. In the climate era, as we face one of the most challenging decades of our time, let’s use the full power of councils to strengthen our local communities and create a true sense of place and purpose."
The Conference will showcase some of the actions that Councils and other public bodies can take, and are taking to engage their residents in building truly transformative action, as well as addressing the barriers that they face in doing this.
You'll find out more about plans that have an urgent target date (no later than 2030), baseline emissions with yearly target reductions, strategies to inspire, involve, educate and inform everyone in the organisation as well as those who they influence.
