Cross-sector approaches to climate change and net zero engagement
Date: 30 November 2021
Time: 10:00 - 11:30
Online - Zoom
With the UK hosting COP26 and a raft of new government policies launched, it’s great to see local authorities and utility companies accelerating planning to help address the climate crisis and press ahead with decarbonisation. As the new net zero strategy recognises, a place-based approach is vital to good engagement and supporting a just transition.
It’s widely recognised that citizens and customers must be part of the discussions – and the decisions – that move us towards net zero.
So, how best to do this? What methods are meaningful but proportionate? Is a full climate assembly necessary?
Could councils and utilities take a ‘whole house’ approach and work together to deliver engagement activities in their shared localities?
At this event, we’ll brief you on different engagement options and take you through their advantages and limitations. You’ll hear from speakers about their experiences of climate and future energy engagement:
- Hannah Jameson, Assistant Director Sustainable Growth and Climate Change Response at London Borough of Lambeth, about the Lambeth climate assembly
- Jamie Moore, Senior Engagement Specialist at EirGrid/SONI , about ‘Shaping our electricity future’
We will then explore opportunities for cross-sector collaboration together.
