During the COVID-19 lockdown, communities have learnt how resilient they really are and local councils have proven how key they are to that response and recovery effort. But communities recover best and quickest when local agencies work together in partnership.


Join this panel session to hear from others at different levels of the local and central government - share and discuss your own views. Hear from other community resilience experts about how your local council can best partner up and deliver sustainable post-COVID solutions for your communities.

Speakers: Cllr James Jamieson, chairman of the LGA and Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of NALC.

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.


The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the awareness of the link between our own health, and that of the planet. 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.

We hope you will leave the event with a renewed passion for tackling climate change locally with confidence to activate it within your council.
