So your local council has declared a climate emergency… what next? Hear from sector experts, experienced councillors and share your own stories on how to rebuild greener and more sustainable communities. We will talk about climate action plans, how to work with your principal authority and how to ensure your community assets are sustainable, and how to ensure your council’s biodiversity. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the awareness of the link between our own health, and that of the planet. We hope you will leave the event with a renewed passion for tackling climate change locally with confidence to activate it within your council.
Speakers: Sandra Bell, senior sustainability analyst at Friends of the Earth, Clara Goldsmith, campaigns director at The Climate Coalition and Peter Macfadyen, Extinction Rebellion and former mayor of Frome Town Council
