In 2019, the UK’s target to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 was enshrined in law. But getting there requires a step-change in pace and scale from what we’re doing now. All levels of government will need to be involved.
Town and parish councils are uniquely placed to help, by stimulating grassroots action, setting a leadership example and providing a focal point for practical action – and 100s of councils have passed declarations of a Climate Emergency, signalling their determination to do exactly this.
This one-day workshop from the Centre for Sustainable Energy will help. We’ll support town and parish councillors – busy people who are not expert in this complex area – make sense of the scale of the issue, and take action in the way that is most appropriate to their area and spheres of influence.
Funded by a grant from Warwickshire County Council Green Shoots Fund
