NALC releases extra tickets for its online event on climate change
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has released extra tickets to its sold-out online event on fighting climate change, which takes place on 25 May 2022.
37% of local (parish and town) councils have declared a climate emergency, with 8% declaring a biodiversity emergency. Local councils recognise the importance of climate change, but many feel disempowered to act.
In October 2021, NALC published its Climate Change Survey Report. The results indicated that 25% of local councils believed they were too small to make a difference, and a further 20% stated they lacked the resources and power to act.
Join this event to learn more about the actions that councils can take locally to fight climate change and discover how councils are already doing this successfully.
The expert panel includes Chris Bagshaw, Kendal Climate Change Jury representative, Dr Amy Burnett, founder of Development in Transition and Mike Childs, head of science, policy & research at Friends of the Earth.
