Continuing our new (and popular!) monthly series of talks and discussions about policy issues, H&F Lib Dems present a talk on:
"Policy Priorities for a Zero Carbon Britain"
Dorothy MacKenzie, a Director of the Carbon Trust and a former chair of the Green Alliance
From the Carbon Trust:
More than half of the UK’s principal local authorities have declared a climate emergency in the last eight months (261 of 408 local authorities). Of these, many have also set net-zero targets, with some specifying they will be net-zero by 2030 — 20 years ahead of the UK government’s 2050 target.
But how can they move from a political statement of intent to the delivery of robust and measurable change? This is the challenge facing many of the UK’s local authorities, as they seek to turn climate emergency declarations into viable action plans.
Members and supporters are welcome to attend and ask questions. Please RSVP below and join us! The Zoom room will be open starting 7 PM.
